"RE: How does focus tracking work during burst (D4) "

I have a D800E that i recently switched to from my D300s. I shoot a lot of birds in flight and underwater shots.

On the 300s I found dynamic worked better than 3D and 21 points were better than 9 or 51 points. The longer focus tracking time allows you stay locked on longer.

On the D800E I really like 3d with 51 points and long focus tracking time. Dynamic works fine as well, but 3d yields more keepers.

I use focus on button only with dynamic and so far I like the shutter focus better for 3d....but with more use I may also prefer the focus on button.

I know that I don't have a D4 (would gladly take one as a donation) but with similar AF systems it should work the same.

Hope this helps
