My guesstimate would be it would be an idea to have your camera checked out.

I'm sure if I had time to focus the Df would have. I needed instantaneous focusing, which the Df couldn't provide in AF-C, and required the red Auto focusing light from the flash to focus in AF-S. The D800 worked flawlessly in the AF-C with focus priority.

If it required the focus light to focus, that's just broken. I've had it focus on the centre point AF-S in a dark room without a light! It's better than the D800E on the centre point.

Try this: (has some light, used flash, nonetheless, almost completely dark, no focus light...)
