Why post in the Canon forum, you should post in Nikon Smokes is an interesting verb, clearly not from someone familar with either Nikon's top line nor Canon's.

BTW I can confirm that my D4 has no issues, also a tad faster in aquiring and faster in 3D compared to D3s. Not sure how much yet in 3D, but I've read from others that it is supposidly very good. On D3s I'd do 9pt or 21pt AF-C and could track indoor gymnysts running at me at full speed 9FPS.

At somepoint anyfaster or "smoking" won't yield much more IMHO. I eagerly await to see some of my canon buddies if they leap to 1DX and when we do our next gymnastics meet.

I bought the Nikon D3s out of frustration from the 5D-2's inferior AF. The D3s was/is a great AF camera.

What makes the 5D-3's AF so spectacular is that it surpasses the great D3s in accuracy, and it does it with almost twice the MP.
