Without a split focusing screen, I'm having a hard time manual focusing, and I feel I can't trust the AF to get it right either.

If you don't wear glasses, try using a Nikon DK-17M magnifying eyepiece.

For those wanting to manual focus the DK-17M I highly recommend.  I recently added on to my D800 and it really helps.  It makes manual focusing a reasonable alternative.
