Could anyone enlighten me on what are the ideal autofocus settings to capture birds in flight. I am a little confused with the various autofocus modes and settings with respects to quickly follow a bird in flight and increasing my chances of getting a sharp focused image. My question is which mode should I set my D700 on? Is the 51 point 3D tracking in dynamic area AF my best bet for this or should I use auto area AF? I am shooting with a 50-500mm lens at 500mm. tks
