High-speed, wide-area 7-point AF with superimposed focusing points.
Focus with Unmatched Flexibility The 7-point Wide-Area AF System makes focusing quick and accurate, even when your subject is off-center. 7 focusing points are laid out in a cross pattern that's visible on the uncluttered Viewfinder, using a superimposed optical system for utmost clarity. You can opt to let the camera detect your subject and select the proper focusing point, or choose a focusing point yourself. In either case, the chosen point will be illuminated for a no-surprise focus. If the selection goes beyond the extreme left or right AF point, automatic AF point selection takes effect.

Simply set the correct Dioptric Adjustment with a dedicated dial (-3.0 - +1.0 diopter) to shoot comfortably with or without your glasses.
Fast AF in Any Situation Highly responsive autofocus makes shooting with the EOS Digital Rebel exciting and spontaneous. The camera automatically employs 1 of 3 AF systems to let you seize every photo opportunity with fast, accurate focus. One-Shot AF ensures precise, carefree focus in all-around shooting. AI Servo AF tracks active subjects to predict their movement, making continuous focusing calculations right up to the last possible moment for dynamic stop-action shots. AI Focus AF switches between One-Shot AF and AI Servo AF when it senses that subjects are starting and stopping. It's perfect for children, pets, wildlife and other unpredictable subjects. Rapid image processing and a generous buffer memory maintain sharp, accurate focus with speedy subject tracking even in the Continuous Shooting Mode, allowing you to capture split-second action sequences at 2.5 fps with a 4-shot burst.
