Is there some real reason (technical) that the FT1 could not be made to use continuous focus or use other AF points besides the center?

Interesting thread - I didn't realize that the FT1 limited focus in this way!

I am considering buying a V1 to supplement my D300. I do a lot of UK historic / classic motor racing photography using the D300 and Nikon 70-200 combination and thought a V1 might be useful for paddock shots etc, to save changing lenses too often. Taking that a stage further I had also considered getting an FT1 to use occasionally e.g. with the 70-200 for some longer head-on race shots but if it lacks continuous focus tracking then maybe I won't.

Clearly I need to check the specs a bit more closely. Thanks for highlighting!
