Re: D4 AF - Question to Pros

I do not have the D4 rather I have the D4S.  I also came form the D300s.  With the use of the Grouped AF in the D4S (5 points working as one) it tracks birds across the face of busy back grounds without many instances of AF loss.  Also the f19 setting is a big plus in my opinion.  You can be using S or GRP on wadding/sitting birds and when one flies off, you just press one of the lens AF buttons (available on the 300, 400, 500, 600 and 800mm glass) and the camera will instantly switch to any one AF mode you have programed in the menu setting.  Release the button and you are back to S or GRP.
