Best for each one of us to test this out, see what fits best. Many have, and recommend a 1.

Your recommendation of having it set to only 1 all the time is not exactly correct. It all depends on the situation.

In general / default, 1 (or 2) is better than 3 or higher. Increase the number if foreground obstructions are expected, which is exactly what it was intended for.

Again: not just foreground, but also background.  For example, if you have tight framing on an erratic subject and your subject will leave the frame entirely for a split-second, setting this too low can tell the camera to refocus on the background (during the period the subject is temporarily out of frame), where the AF will stay from that point onward.

And again: it depends on the situation.  I don't know why you keep saying it should only ever be set to 1 and that you think Nikon should have removed this setting entirely from the menus.  Why do you keep saying that?  Why do you keep insisting that this setting influences the speed of initial AF acquisition?
