I am relatively new with D800, coming from D90.

I am a event photographer and with D90 i used to just press the shutter fast and getting the great clicks in dance party or any event or if someone else using my camera.

With D800 i am losing this fun. I just cant press the shutter and get the clicks, many many times it is defocused and specially someone else taking my pic who is not aware of AF-ON spoils the photo.

I use NIKON 24-120 lens.

In dance party or wedding you need to click fast you cant just keep press the AF-ON all the time.

Is there any setting in camera that i dont need to worry about focus?

Exposure Problem

In the night shoot with speed light if i click fast; exposure changes automatically and after 3 shots i get the one i am looking for. My exposure is set to 0 zero.

Here is the sequence of the photos. Perfect - Little Dark - very Dark and then Perfect.
