Re: D610 and real world AF feedback for low light

My D600 (pretty much the same camera) hunts with telephoto in low light (above ISO 3200 and wide open to keep shutter speed above 1/640) with moving targets. However this is not true in stage lighting (which is not low light on the target in the true sense). I do not have this issue with the 24-85mm VR "kit" lens, or primes. I do not use the focus assist light, as it distracts the subject.

So, I pay attention to the "focus" dot and arrows and manually focus. This seems to work OK.

Hope this is a help.
