Do you turn VR off for airshows and is 21 point focus reasonable?I use the AF button for focussing on the D700 & continuous shot.I have found 3D 51 point perfectly OK for airliners against a bright blue sky with no intrusions to affect the shot.Thanks

21 points would be reasonable. However, I would try 9 to see I could get away with it. Less is more. Outside of experimentation, I have never used the 3D51 mode for anything.I would turn VR on. It greatly helps with panning. Slower shutter speeds are need to get the desired prop blur.Check out the aviation forum. You should get lots of good advice there.---------+---------+---------+---------+---------+Joseph KSeattle, WA, USAD700, D200, D70S, 24-70mm f/2.8, VR 70-200mm f/2.8 II, 50mm f/1.4 D, 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 DX
