Oops, you're right, I wish I could delete my post now

Thanks for checking. I just re-tested my D600, and it does not behave the way I originally described. I must have done something wrong. Sorry about that! I wish I could delete my original post.

So in AF-A mode, if it decides to use AF-S, it defaults to focus priority, and if it decides to use AF-C, it defaults to release priority?

That would be a convenient way to quickly change from release to focus priority for when I need to hand my camera to someone else to take a picture for me.

Have you checked your Custom settings a1 (for AF-C) and a2 (for AF-S), because with these you are able to set whether you want the camera to be on shutter or focus release.

However in AF-A it will allways be focus release priority - unless I have missed a custom setting somewhere.
