Words of wisdom for sure, and completely agree. When the author says and I quote ;;
"The D7000 makes great photos, even when used as a point-and-shoot. When I hand my D7000 to a non-photographer like my wife, I leave it at its default of AF-A and Auto". end quote.
I feel he leaves no doubt as to what he is saying. Certainly it would be a waste of a good camera to always rely on the cameras focusing system per say. As said, and I agree, it can very often be improved upon, but this follows for any dslr camera regardless of what you pay or how good it is.
Its about knowing when to and when not to. Also realising that no auto focus system is bullet proof and that they do have limitations at some point.
Even so I still feel the article has some usefull info.
