Thanks Anthony. Yes the results I get seem to match Mansurov's review
in regards to the 300f4 vs 200-400f4.

I went to the field to do more testing last weekend and attempted to play with fine tuning on the D4 along with the 200-400f4.

200mm =    0 tuning required regardless of the shooting distance and aperture

300mm =    0 tuning required regardless of the shooting distance and aperture

350mm =   0 tuning required regardless of the shooting distance and aperture

400mm  =  It gets a bit tricky here, was not always consistent. At f4 I was getting better results with the AF tuning at 0, at f5.6 I was getting better results at -5 AF tuning, a few at -10 but it was not consistent. Might have to also do with shooting technique, at the moment I just have a monopod.

In preparation for next boat race I'm not sure neither which would give best results either the AF-C Single Point or AF-C Dynamic 9. Any preference and recommendation ? Thanks
