D7100 substantially better AF than D7000??
Apr 14, 2013

Hi D7100 usersl;

Generally a happy D7000 owner (2 1/3 years coming from a D80).  My main problem is AF consistency.  I find that focus is spot on, then not.  I fine tune and come up with one value,  then then a week later its a different value,  example from 0 to -6,  or -8 to -14.  Then after fine tuning, I do a portrait focused on 1 eye, and it back focuses!!  Of course this is not ALL the time, and many shots are very accurate, then not??   My D7000 DOES NOT have any left/right focus problems.

For fine tuning I have kept light (and color of light) consistent.

If a D7100 would be substantially better in AF consistency, then I would upgrade.  I do not need high buffer speed or frame rates, an not concerned that shadows may have streaking/banding/noise, or that I will not get an ISO lift.

Reading the posts, it seems that 1/2+ of you D7100 users say the AF if GREAT, but a good number also say that it is inconsistent.  To be sure, I am not talking about speed of focus, just CONSISTENCY and ACCURACY.

So what has been your experience with AF consistency from D7000 to D7100
