Thanks Roel for your good commend. You are one of my admire photographer. I like all your posted pictures here. Sorry that if the pictures is so sensitive. I will be more careful.

In order to get good AF in low light situation, technique is most important. Gear just make it more easy. I use technique from book "Tack Sharp, a step by step guide to nailing focus" by James Brandon. He recommends to set AFL/AEL button as start AF and set shutter release button as shutter release function only, no half way press to start AF. S-AF set as mode 3. In this setting, single AF point is selected and press AFL/AEL button to set AF on your subject ready and nail shutter button at the key moments to capture image.

With AFL/AEL button focus, again, you can set focus on your subject and have the shutter ready when the moment happens.

I am quite confident with this technique AF to apply for all situations.
