  • New 65-point autofocus system and 10fps high speed continuous shooting to capture fast-moving objects
  • Newly developed 65-point all cross-type AF system1 with a f/2.8 compatible high precision dual-cross center AF point that also supports AF at f/8 and extremely low-light conditions at EV -3 sensitivity2
  • Features AI Servo AF III algorithm and AF Configuration Tools for highly precise and stable AI Servo AF tracking
  • 7 AF Area selection modes, including the new “Large Zone AF”
  • New “AF Area Selection Lever” allows easy switching between AF area selection modes
