using what kind of lens? kit? (f/3.5-f/5.6), f/4? or f/2.8? or a prime even faster? that makes a difference when light levels are lower.

Lens will make a difference, but a f/5.6 lens will send the same amount of light to the focusing sensor on Nikons. The only system I know where focusing speed and accuracy changes is on Canons (don't know if all Canons work that way) where there are more accurate sensors that are activated by the f/2.8 aperture lens. Only thing a wider aperture does on Nikons is a brighter viewfinder.

I had a 24-70/2.8 Tamron VC on the Df, and a 24-120/4.0 on the D800.
