Any tips on increasing accuracy of Auto Focus NEX 5N?

I'm shooting after dark in a cityscape environment, usually at ISO 12,600 to increase shutter speed in P mode with the 18-55.  It's really nothing but hit or miss with AF and becoming increasingly frustrating.  The camera is excellent and has a lot of redeeming features except for AF which, even in a well lit environment can be questionable.  I am shooting quickly between shots and sporadically composing but taking shots more on the fly than anything else.  Would love to know the secret of getting consistently sharp, or even moderately sharp AF images with the 5N.
