Up till now I focused the vast majority of my shots the way I did with my old F3 and FA - manually, as I was having a devil of a time getting used to a camera that focused for me. It constantly wouldn't snap the shutter when I wanted it to. Then with the camera slung back over my shoulder it would snap 6 shots of my feet, while I was walking away in disgust. This day I was determined to incorporate auto focus or die trying. I finally met with great success when I moved the focus point to one spot in the viewfinder, then looked for areas in the field of flowers that had a clear patch of space with a solid green background behind it nestled in a photographic grouping of flowers. Fortunately bees were everywhere in this field and I didn't have to wait too too long for one to happen by a spot I'd camp out in. Now with the focus point already where the bee was, autofocus was a snap. There were many great spots composition wise in this field, this was one of the best I came across.
