Canon SL1 Focusing

One of the most mentioned problems that people have with the Fujifilm X100 series is focusing, so I am interested in seeing how well the Canon SL1 focuses.  In the past I have had trouble with most of my cameras other than the Pentax K-3 when trying to focus on something outside while photographing through a double pane window and between the venation blind slats, so that was one of my first trials with the Canon SL1.  As you can see, it did well auto focusing on the rhododendron with the 40 mm lens at f/2.8.  I used the center single focus point.  The only way I could do this with any of my Fujifilm X cameras was to focus manually.

For those who are wondering, Marcia was outside in 12 degree F. temperature sweeping up excess salt to keep it out of Misty’s paws.  The rhododendron was between her and the window.
