Anyone who shoots with a D5100 and a 35 1.8 at 1.8 in low contrast lighting is asking for trouble. Well beyond the brief of lens or camera. The 35 1.8 should come with a warning sticker: "No newbies or focus tweakers allowed!" You were looking for failure, and you found it.

I wasn't looking for a failure, I was looking for a camera that focused in low light.  The 35mm 1.8 is made to work with the D5100 isn't it?  If the D5100 is a failure with the 35mm 1.8 and the 50mm 1.8, then yes, it should come with a warning.  If this combo doesn't work, why is it the user's fault (newby or tweaker)?

And the initial focus problems I had with the D5100 were with the 18-105 zoom, which the camera comes with as a kit.
