Seeing that the 7D II sometimes didn’t nail AF with critical accuracy yesterday, I recalled having the same problem when I had a brief chance to shoot puffins six years ago. Some shots were perfect, some were a little off. But…..my first time out with the camera a few days ago, every shot was perfect. What gives?
Reading the instruction manual (yeah, sometimes it helps) educated me to the fact that the setting that seems most logical, isn’t. In the afternoon, I edited available AF areas, made sure I had the best option for whatever type of shot I was shooting, and the camera nailed every single shot with critical accuracy.
Sometimes “focus” problems are a user issue . . . 🥴
