D70 off-center focus areas endless hunting?
Mar 5, 2009

Are the D70 off-center auto focus areas way much less sensitive than the main central one? or is it maybe a low- battery issue?

i was experimenting yday how those work , while in low light conditions , and while the main focus was always focusing fast and correctly, the other focus areas were unable to focus (aiming at the same or at a point with even better contrast) hunting endlessly forth and back ........
