Re: D4 and f/1.4 primes...
In reply to Ray Soares, Jan 27, 2013

I never said the shots were not sharp, someone else did however. I said tracking should be easy. Don't get defensive. Think about it, how much was the change in subject camera distance? If the person was moving towards or away from you, then tracking was a lot more demanding. Oh, and what does FPS have anything to do with tracking.

Easy tracking? Not sharp? at f1.4? at 10 fps? Are you sure? Let me see any other similar samples from ANY other camera but MAYBE a D3/3s or a 1Dx...

Anyway this is not a scientific AF test; I was just testing mine in an extreme condition (as I'll never shoot action/sports at f1.4...) and I can assure you that the D4's AF is amazing acurate/fast in any situation!

Your mileage may vary though...
