The reason I focus first with AF is because, judging manual sharp focus with these lenses when moving is nearly impossible. As I use the AF for stills and the vast majority of the time it nails it, I thought setting the focus with the AF was probably the best way.
Interesting about the interpolation. The only reason I am using the 550D at present is to get the stabilisation working, when I feel able to get a steadyish sequence with a short telephoto, then I would be looking for pro grade equipment.
I also have seen some very nice quality aerials shot on a 5dmkII from different people. Does a 5D handle video differently to other DSLR’s?, I can’t say even tripod based video with the 550D has exactly blown me away.
