Your choice release or focus priority

You may never miss again.

you want to set it for release priority if you do a lot of recompose. I thought everyone did it this way.

Actually, it doesn't matter on the D4 and D800.  You are correct that you SHOULD have to set it to release priority.  In the new cameras when using AF-C with the AF-ON button the shutter will fire immediately, regardless of your priority setting.  Nikon refuses to admit this is a bug in their current cameras and that it is working as designed.
