    Has anyone gotten this to work? I have yet to see it focus on anyone's eye. I wasn't sure if this was just a gimmick or not. It would be nice though, if it actually worked.

    I snapped a few quick shots of my kids--not quiet as sharp as I thought they would be (granted, the camera was only on IA, haven't had much time to tinker w/settings). What has been anyone else's experience w/shots of people? Esp. trying to focus on fast moving kids.

    I works through face detect focus(so that must be turned on). You will see the normal white box when you have a face detected. When you go to focus a green box appears around the eye indicating it has a focus lock on the eye. That's all there is to that feature.
