Autofocus C

Just one point (although that may cause problems if you're taking pics of a team .... but if light is OK, you can increase a bit depth of field)

Works for me.

I dont understand what you mean - surely one point works fine on a team if you put that point in the correct place ? much the same as an action shot....or am i missing something ?

Did another match t/day with AF-C + D9 and hardly any oof shots !

You're right: but if the people move a lot (and they do :-)) putting the point on the roght person may be difficult

D9 should be fine. I may be too much used to birds. One point is usually best. What I mistrust is D51...

AF-C is the key point
