Am new to the forum... have just purchased my new D-800. Has not arrived yet... I am an experienced professional photographer and I was wondering how to navigate this forum to find the best settings for sports photography, both indoor and out.. have used a D-300 for years, loved it but it is showing its age..

Wondering what are the best settings for focus points? Should I use AF or AF continuing focus.. have a little ADD and I find it difficult to read manuals so I was hoping that someone had the correct setting right off the bat.. shots lots of HS football, soccer, volleyball and winter sports season is coming up..

Use a 300 2.8 for most outdoor sports and a 85 1.8 for indoor..

Thanks in advance and hope to become a participating member soon..
