Still no trap focus.

I'm not a MF guy, but at least the AF-S and AF-C "priority selection" (option a1 and a2) now work!

In other words, you when you have a1 and a2 set to "Focus" an image won't be made without achieving focus.  It used to bug me a LOT.

That is not trap focus.

This is the way it worked on the older cameras;

AFAIK Nikon changed something starting with the D4.
