    I like taking wildlife shots, and BIF are some of the most graceful images IMO. I was having some issues with tracking though. One of the problems was the fact I didn't have a long enough lens, 45-150. I have since purchased a 100-300. Is there any tips for BIF on a :43: specifically? I know about prefocus and tracking using a DSLR, but the AF on that is faster. I know it can be done, I have seen pics here from people. But I wasn't able to get anything in focus, always something in front, back or foreground

    never mind, I found a thread in Nature and someone there gave some tips on how they did it.
