Re: D600 AF Tracking in Low-Light?

Sprinting! If she's sprinting towards you, u could easily get 1 good shot. but more might be tough. Side-on, nothing to it. How many good shots do u want? I would prefocus and shoot 5 fps burst using an f-stop to give me a couple of feet DOF (auto-iso up to 6400). i would have af set to d-9 and af-c with my thumb poised over ael button reprogrammed as af-on.  Keeping the center 9 on her, burst away.  u need a good lens.

anyway, u should practice beforehand.  no-one can say how good you'll track her or if she's wearing contrasty clothes.  when u mention a 51 point system as being better, are u just talking about the center point or using all? if all, which i doubt, i suspect your keepers will drift down towards zero.
