2 serious bugs with 3D tracking and metering

Re: Ok, here is an example

Hi,

Now, I'm not sure here, I don't have my D300 yet, but it seems to me - by my reading, and in my VERY humble opinion, that the test may be flawed - mostly because the way I understand what you are describing you are not "tracking" an object, you are manually changing a focus point with the shutter at 1/2 press.

It is possible that in 3D Tracking mode - it is meant for tracking, where the camera tracks and object? perhaps it is not designed to function the way you are using it manually moving a focus point rather then letting the camera track the subject?

like I said, I don't really know, I'm just thinking about the wording for the mode the camera is in, and I guess I would assume that in 3D Tracking, the camera would be responsible for doing the tracking as long as the shutter is 1/2 press? And although you manually moved the focus point, the camera did not track the subject of original interest to the new location, so the camera did not re-meter the total image?

Just a thought - like I said, I'm shooting from the hip here from what I interpreted from the posts, other peoples responses and the bits of the manual I have read so far waiting for my camera.
