Hello,

I did join the forum in order to find a solution for the following.


Into theatre photography and some time ago I bought a "killer" combination, a D3s and a 200 VR F2 AF-S.

I am more then happy with the quality of the images taken at ISO 12800 IF they are in focus !!!!

I use AF Single point and autofocus priority (simply because I don't think release priority is an option).

Often it takes time to get a "lock" and even then, the shot isn't always in focus.

I have more then enough experience to know when a camera SHOULD be able to focus and I tought that a "top of the bill" camera such as the D3s would deliver !
I often grab and use my Canon 5D (who's autofocus system is lousy according many) to take pictures in similar circumstances !

I'll return my Nikon gear for a checkup within the next weeks but was wondering if there are any recent "complaints"/solutions, since I can only find older treads.

Thanks

Chezie
