Re: D4 AF - Question to Pros

I've used a pair of D4 for 2 years, replacing my D300's as you did. I shoot mainly birds and don't usually have the problem you describe. Probably because I use spot focus (with the smallest number of focal points) for all my shots except when the bird is in the sky and there is no discernible background. When you use either of the other 2 modes, the focusing points are often well outside the profile of the bird and will almost always focus on the background (or go into search mode) and miss the relatively small bird. Of course, manual focus will overcome this if you have the eyes and hand coordination which I sorely lack. If you're using spot focus you might want to check to make sure the red focusing square is place where you want it.
