Re: D750, upgrade path and AF

Couple of random thoughts:

Are you able to add light (flash, modifiers)? If nothing else, a suitable speedlight will give you fairly unobtrusive focus assist with the flash off.

You say "I expect putting the initial AF point on subject's eyes, half pressing the shutter and the camera to take it from there and maintain focus." - so you're using focus-recompose? That can affect your focus plane and sometimes the subject or you have moved. What happens if you use BBAF/AF-C? What AF mode are you using?

Presumably, you have a shallow depth of field, is that because you need the light? Unless it's for artistic reasons, I'd personally not want the razor-sharp depth of field for portraits.
