Re: best setting for birding with D800 body

What I was wondering...

If you not using tracking then what is the difference in AF-C single point and AF-C 21 points?

I see a lot of discusion on how many points but I either use 3D tracking or single point...

how many times do you have the time to change your focus points during midflight tracking of a bird flying over? Especially when using 500mm, 600mm or even 700mm?

In my experience it is hard enough to do it with all 51 points in 3D tracking when wanting to end up will a frame filling shot.
