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.

Why my Km5d can focus with a 50mm f1.7 and hit the target most times. If you had any photographic understanding you'd be quite a poster on this forum

Nobody expects a 100% hit rate, but you also don't expect it to miss focus by the margin some users report. If you can't get a focus lock the AF system should let you know. That's another gripe with Nikon

Also the D7k hunts much more in low light v the D90..slower too by some margin. It's far from the miracle some say it is
