Re: D300s initial testings = positive

From the Nikon D300s microsite, it does say: "Contrast-detect AF is available," but how it looks, I don't know.

Unleash a whole new dimension of creativity, by expressing your vision in Motion-JPEG format with HD quality (1,280 x 720 pixels) at 24 fps. Nikon’s impressive D-Movie function has undergone various improvements since its launch in 2008, and now comes with an external microphone terminal for clear stereo recordings that add an exciting new element to your movies. Another way to enhance the dramatic impact of your movies, far beyond the reach of ordinary camcorders, is with our unrivaled lineup of NIKKOR lenses — from ultra-wide-angle and fisheye to super-telephoto. The versatile Picture Control adjustment options let you modify the tone and color of your movies with remarkable ease. And Tripod mode gives you control over the depth of field with a selectable aperture of up to f/16.* Contrast-detect AF is available, too. In Handheld mode, the D300S can automatically adjust the aperture setting to match changes in the brightness of your scene. The D300S delivers everything you need to produce and enjoy a new world of advanced image creation, in both movies and still images.

Can you use any kind of af-mode when shooting video?
Did you test the video-mode with the af on or off?
