Thanks for sharing your new field tested preferences, Larry. And,even better, they're for the D800/E. Will look forward to seeing some of your images from this outing.
I thought there were some surprises - particularly focus tracking at short or 'infinitely short'. After thinking about it, I decided you are emphasizing very fast moving subjects and discounting interference from a crossing target.
These settings could also work for continuous mode - you may have tried continuous with your new stable platform.
