first of all I've been an SLR user since primary school age and never thought I'd have a problem with nowadays DLSR, until last weekend I tried with an entry level Nikon D3100, the results all turned out terrible. I'm not starting an APS-C vs :43: or DSLR vs EVIL, I'm just saying if there's anybody who can tell me how to focus with the shabby PDAF system. The PDAF seems to be slow and highly inaccurate, didn't know if it was my fault. The liveview with CDAF however seems to be correct, and not actually slower. Is that what everybody's talking about when regarding "CDAF not matching PDAF" really? And I'm so spoiled to have found that I can't focus without a touchscreen. How do you guys when using a DSLR (I mean a better model) focus on what you want (pets, moving sub) without a touchscreen, do the cameras know what to focus on?
