  1. +Jim Batey Eyes are always difficult. The focus points in the view finder are not accurate or small enough. And it didn't help that the bird was about to strike (you can see movement in the foot in the air). The D3x was never intended for action (2 fps), but I often was able to get the image by anticipating the action.
