Nikon AF improvement?
Mar 12, 2013

I keep reading posts from various sources that Nikon improved AF in the newest generation of cameras, i.e. D4 AF is better than D3s, and D800 is better than D700. On the other hand, there is a constant stream of AF complaints, at least on the D800 side, since D4 posts are in any case very few and far between. I know that the ability to AF with f/8 lens/tele combos is a new thing and a definite plus in some cases. But what's the reality beyond that? Is AF really improved? Is it noticeably faster, more reliable, more sure in low light than the prior one from the D3s/D700 generation? Or are these claims unfounded, and some people are just taking for granted and repeating what Nikon had said until everyone believes it? If you have first hand knowledge and experience, please contribute.

Nikon D3S Nikon D4 Nikon D700 Nikon D800
