Hi Jon,

If I may suggest trying out the D800's AF options. For me, using AF-C 3D, 11points W/ shutter release works well (some on that in my post above). It might be good to engage the "focus" option also, so the camera won't shoot unless there is a subject in focus. I was very frustrated when I tried AF on my D800 in the same way I had done on other cameras. A good book on the D800 is also priceless!

The Nikon D800 is a fantastic camera! I think the real learning curve for this camera is re-thinking how I used to focus and shoot, and adapting to how this camera best works for me.

Best Regards and Well Wishes,

Ken
