To enable af tracking you only need to be in af-C

To enable what Nikon define as 3D tracking you need to be in auto exposure and custom image (why custom image I cant understand)

All Pentax k3 and above are able to track Z axis using the HD exposure meter but only the k1 is capable of interlinking data from both the 2D PD sensor and the HD exposure sensor to predict 'swerving' Z axis motion.

As drpreview deliberately threw a swerving Z axis target at the cameras to test their 3D tracking performance it would seem sensible to me if they actually enabled that function prior to test !!

Irrelevant of the outcome or validity of the test itself they had the function they were testing disabled then complain it doesn't work ........

Very strange journalism.
