Do the people you are trying to portrait, moving or not?

If they do not, as I mention before, I find the AF-S Single-servo AF to be my choice.
The biggest advantage of using this technique is almost never an unsharp picture.

There is nothing wrong about using the AF-C Continuous-servo AF, do not get me wrong.s

I think most “pro” avoid “auto”. It does not matter if it is the AF, ISO, or whatever.

However I use the 51-point dynamic-area AF, but most of the time with the focus point selection.

But there is one thing I think most people forget. To practice and testing. To get the most out of the AF system, you just need to do that.
