I was shooting a Relay for Life last night to 6 AM this morning at a local college and decided to use my Df. I had it set up for flash, AF-C single point, center point, focus priority. The Df struggled to lock focus in what I would consider in light, while low, not all that bad. I had to switch to AF-S, and the red AF-assist illuminator in order to lock focus. When I had a small break in the action I replaced the Df with my D800. With the same initial setup the D800 nailed the focus instantaneously 100% of the time.

In fact that's my only complaint about the Df: focusing. Oh, and some of the locking knobs are stupid, but still.

As I said in my review (sig):

If anyone knows the guy who decided to put the D7000 focusing system in this wonderful camera, kick him in the **BLEEP**, really, really hard, right now.

It's more important how an image looks as a thumbnail than how it looks at 100%.
