Re: D800 AF-ON and AF-C

Since my D300 I only use AFC + AF-ON.

With the D4 I'm now have the choice to use only one focus point which is a bit better to focus precisely on irises...

I do feel AFC gets more keepers in almost any situation included the so called posed pics as you and/or target always move, breath,etc. Coupled with AF-ON it is unbeatable IMHO.

The only situation I use AFS with the D4 is with very low Light and using flash as with AFC the camera don't use the light/AF help from the flash and sometimes it is unvaluable to focus in these conditions.
