I hope my topic didn't confuse anyone. The short of it is: Last night I was at a local camera club meeting here in Helsinki. One of the guest speakers was discussing shooting concerts and that she shoots on Manual Mode because her camera (Canon 7D) autofocuses faster in Manual Mode than it does on either the Aperture Priority or Speed Priority modes. Has anyone experienced this as well? I shoot a Nikon D3S and have not seen any difference in the autofocus in the three different shooting modes. I was not aware that they were linked in anyway.
