    What's the deal with AF-Lock setting when using AF-C mode? Does it lock focus and tracks that locked point or just locks and leave it there?

    Is there a way like the Lock-On mode in D200/D2 class?

    Thanks for help,

    The issue with the D80 is that it is set to "release priority", and not "focus priority". One of the reasons I sold mine.

    The D40 though does focus priority :)

    That isn't always true, focus priority can be selected by setting Autofocus Mode to AF-S, the following is from the D80 User's Manual, page 29:


    AF-S Single-servo AF
    For stationary subjects. Focus locks when shutter-release button is pressed
    halfway. Shutter can only be released when in-focus indicator is displayed.



    When Autofocus Mode is set to AF-S, a picture will not be taken until focus is achieved.

    I always thought it locked it there, but never tested it completely.
