I have switched to using the AF-ON method to auto focus -- and am getting fewer out of focus shots now.

I have just ordered the MC-30 remote cable for my D700 (and D300) and am eager to try it out.

However -- I got to thinking about this -- and got to wondering about the following situation --

Lets say I am setting up to BRACKET 5 shots (maybe for an HDR or something). I frame up my shot, press and release the AF-ON button to get focus -- (I would have already set my camera to CL so I only have to press the remote one time -- at least I think it works that way - please correcct me if I am wrong) and my camera then fires off the 5 bracketed shots

My question is -- after the first shot of the series -- will I then lose auto focus -- in other words -- will AF-ON then turn off and the balance of 4 shots then be out of focus -- or will focus HOLD for all 5 shots in the series ?

Thanks in advance -- I would appreciate some clairification on this
