I also fully switched to group focus to track. It's a slightly bigger area than the single point which improves staying on target but it isn't that big the focus jumps to something else.

    It makes capturing flight so much easier.
    No not had the weather to try any thing lately

    Re: Back Button Focus - How To Use

    Thats a great video tutorial as posted by Fotojack so i thought i would give it a go on my D7100, my first thoughts are its a great way of focusing however i look through the viewfinder with my left eye and as a result my thumb is in my right eye when its on the back button focus which is quite uncomfortable.
