Larry, I'd be interested to know what AF changes you made.

This thread has brought back memories of standing in Red Square in Moscow (this was 1986) with my Olympus OM-2, jammed up against the wall of GUM to hold my camera steady while shooting pics of the Kremlin at night. But then the Olympus was a real lightweight and easy to handhold.

I'm interested in anything that helps with handholding the D800 as
I'm likely to encounter a number of situations where a tripod can't be used (the dreaded Health and Safety, don't you know).

D4, D800, D600

It ain't so much the things we don't know that get us in trouble. It's the things we know that just ain't so.

Why is this thus? What is the reason of this thusness?
