Re: D800: focus priority, any solution in sight?

I am uncertain how the D800 is functioning. I set up my cameras for shutter priority and I use them as one would use a manual focus camera - focus (using the AF-On button) on the portion of the image that should be the sharpest (near eye, say), recompose, and release the shutter.

I would not expect to have to hold down the AF-On button after focus lock is first achieved - I don't on the D700.

Outside of the issue of not having the focus priority feature available on the D800, is there an additional issue?
