Re: Don't think so, Just tried an experiment

My office at work has no windows, turned off all lights, just ambient light from the hallway. It was at least as dark as your shot. Focus locked every time, with the inexpensive kit lens.

Thom Hogan has reported that the D7000 is good, and comparable to the D300. That seems reasonable to me (I would add that the argument I've been having in this thread about the mirror blackout time is based not on an assertion of reasonable equivalence, but of "noticeable" improvement for the D7000). My expectation though is that a "D400" will bring some tangible improvement in AF over all the currently available DLSRs, and if that was important to me than I would hold pat on the D300/D300s and wait instead for that.
