Hi Jimmy,

I'd appreciate additional comment if you will, to have this subject more complete.

1./  what is the reason to first set sharpness to +5 then use un-sharp mask in PP?   What we are achieving by performing unsharp function later on?

2./  There were some coments on this forum prompting to use 3D tracking (for everything that moves) that is including fast moving dogs, and bikers (see Nikon pg 94) etc.  Suposedly after initial locking focus on the target camera would follow within all 39 focal points in all directions.  What is (wrong?) with such setting vs dynamic 9 points?  We had few well known and regarded folks on this forum advising dynamic 9 points instead...  so must be good reason for that.  Is 3D too slow or inconsistent?
