What exactly is "focus priority"?

On more advanced bodies like the D7xxx and Dxxx series, you can determine whether the camera should take he shot even without focus having been achieved (shutter priority). When you set it to focus priority, it won't take the shot unless focus is achieved. For testing purposes you want to eliminate the chance of purposefully taking a shot out of focus.

On the entry level bodies this feature exists as well, but not as a separate menu item. It comes as part of the combination of settings. Usually, setting the camera to continuous focus (Af-c) and letting it quick fire, will use release priority, while using Af-s sets it too focus priority.
