I don't agree

when shooting wildlife, like deer, elks and the like, AF-S definitely is better as long as the target isn't on the move. AF-C often sets the background in focus because of the way the AF algorithm uses the surrounding focus points in tricky (low contrast) situations.

I only use "AF-On" with the D800, and find switching modes is very simple.
