D800 AF on makes viewfinder flash all red, how to disable?
Mar 23, 2012

I have never seen this on the D3/s/x/D4 bodies. I know some of the others do it:

When the AF is activated on my D800, the entire ground glass flashes red for an instant before lock-on. It is kind of distracting, and tends to cause a brain reset.

At first I thought, ok, it's an option I can defeat. But I can't find it in the settings, and changing "AF Point Illumination" doesn't seem to affect this.

Does anyone know how to defeat this? Thanks.
