"RE: AF-S or AF-C?"

From my somewhat limited knowledge the reasons for using AF-S would be:

Reduced battery usage (AF-C runs down the battery quicker)
Ability to focus and then reframe (ie use shutter release to focus lock and then reframe so that the focussed item is no longer centre of frame).

I personally am not aware of any other disadvantages of using AF-C.
