I've noticed that with a 50 1.8 or the 28-105 nikkor, the N80 will focus fine on a horizontal bust shot of a face but when I go vertical the camera has a hard time focusing. This did not happen with an N70, N90s or F5. I disabled that autofocus light since there is sufficient ambient light. I haven't tried focusing with the autofocus light on again since I refuse to use it. Must I go manual when doing vertical shots with this camera if I disable the light? Is the focusing system worse than the N70, etc?
