Mike,
I hate to tell you, but the bottom line is that autofocus when shooting video with the D4 or D800, is so poor as to be useless!

Manual focus with DSLR video is the "only" way to go - until Nikon starts putting a decent video-centric autofocus capability in their DSLRs.

Sorry, but it's true!

Pete
