I use subject tracking alot, and appreciate it. Especially with the 70-200, using the front lens button to "stick" the square on the subject. And it is easy to switch between Pinpoint AF, eye AF and tracking with the frontwheel while looking into the EVF. With dynamic AF you also need to check whether you are in AF-C or AF-S.

Dynamic area AF isn't available in AF-S .

Yes, that is why I need to check, right?

And above all, am I missing out on not using dynamic AF?

Maybe only use dynamic area AF for a time and you might be able to answer that question for yourself.

FYI - in your title: "Wide Area Subject Tracking." There is only "Subject Tracking (in Auto Area AF) and Wide Area AF (Small and Large).

Well, that is what Nikon calls it in the manual
