Re: 'Eye-Controlled' focus.....

I had an EOS 50E and the eye controlled focus was crap, but that might be because I wear glasses. It also featured a hyperfocal mode where you focussed on the nearest point you wanted to be in focus, followed by the furthest point; the camera would then calculate the necessary aperture and set the focus to the hyperfocal distance. On paper this was a fantastic feature, but it was also crap - totally unusable. Apart from this it was a reasonable camera.
