I have a D4 - LOVE IT!!! Use for business - mostly portraits, but also motocross etc. I am considering getting a Df for travel and personal use. Do not need the Df to do motocross tracking focus, but I will be using it at night on city streets, restaurants/clubs etc. I am use to the D4 focusing in near dark. I have seen the focus of the Df bashed in some reviews, but I think they are bias because same reviewers do not bash the D600/610 focus which is the same? What has your real life experience been.

I absolutely love my Df but have found instances where the focus fails in low light. Specifically in pubs/bars and at one wedding I was at recently. But its only when there really is very little light. But 99% of the time, it works flawlessly.
