Jason, I've been waiting for you to show up so that I could ask a question. In your "Nikon D4 Hands-on First Impressions" of 23 march you noted the change in VR activation by the AF-on button. You said:
"One drawback of this system, however, is that you’ll no longer be able to conserve battery by activating VR only when you want to. How much of an issue this is in practice remains to be seen."
Now that you've been using the D4 much more what are your feelings now?
Since this is a departure from my other Nikons I guess I could get used to it but since I use the AF-on almost exclusively on the D3S/D300s the battery drain is a question. Cheers, Tom
