I'll try. AF-C and a7 set to AF11. Forget about 3D...or any more points for that matter, for what you're shooting.
You can move that 'cluster' all over the VF for better composition. The AF will have a much easier time of it the
less crap you throw at it. I enjoy an obscene keeper rate shootin' roughstock/horses/BIF and they all move faster
than any kid I've known. Read over the manual a couple of times and then with some trial and error you should
be able to dial it in to what works best for you. Took me 1500 actuations to nail mine down, and I'm a quick study.
Lots of other "tweaks" that can help you out...I think rear button AF is a must for things that move, a3 to OFF or
Short, as well as the painfully obvious choice to use f2.8 or faster glass. Hope you find something here to help.
Cheap plug: I'll be finalizing my D800 'monkey set after next weeks wedding, and it'll soon be available for a beer.
Dozens of happy campers with my D7K set, a new AF that also gave many fits. I do the work, so you won't have to.
Yeah, I could write a book...but prefer to spend my time shootin'/drinkin'/chasin' women and postin' here.
