I've read a lot of fellows on here bragging about how good the AF is on the D6x0s and the Df. But in reality it's a second tier AF. It has to show up somewhere coming up short compared to D4s, D800s, D700s.

And yet, knowing how to properly manual focus wins 100% of the time!

Ever been at a Relay for Life? Manual focus not going to help you shooting people moving on a track wat walking speeds.

Anticipate distance. That's why it's etched on the barrel! Action/sports photography existed long before auto focus. And so you believe sports photogs trust their camera to get their shots for them??

And that's the excuse people give for a camera that doesn't focus squat diddly in low light. Tell me how you going to anticipate distance when you have 1,000 participants inside a gymnasium walking around in a recreation center at Rowan University.

Practice, practice, practice.

It's all you can do, but if you are determined to overcome the Dƒ limitations you have to resolve yourself to apply yourself 100% to that goal and not waste time complaining about something you can not fix.

We all know the Dƒ is less than perfect and I am not trying to belittle you for your despair, just try to make the most of what you have.

I realize now that the Df is useless in low light for my type of photography, so I'll use my D800 in the future. Funny thing is the Df did fine at the Stockton College Relay for Life two months earlier under a lot better lighting conditions.
