Contrast Detection Live View AF in D800
May 15, 2012

How is the Contrast Detection Live View AF speed in D800?

I have a D700. For liveview
The D700 "Tripod mode" Contrast Detection AF is very slow.
I think I would call it unuseable.

Is the live view af fast in D800?

Is it good enough to hand the camera to a friend to
take a photo for myself and family, for instance?

Thanks.
