With your new camerra, do you find the 800E with the 4-5 fps fast enough to focus and lock the AF of Birds in flight, or sports? It sure looks like it handles birds in flight well!

What has been your experience shooting birds in flight with the D800E? I am on the fence to see the D3, and buy a D800 or 800E.

So far I am very impressed with the D800E for BIF. However, since I use multiple flash, fps speed is not a consideration. I try to time one good shot at a time. My success rate with this camera exceeds all other cameras I have owned. I would have to attribute that success rate to the lightning fast AF.
