I am a seasoned Nikon film and digital user. Have moved this year to a D700 since the lighting in my Son's basketball gym is so poor (ISO 3200, 1/500 @ F2). I am using either a 50F1.4AFD (notG) or 85F1.8AF.

My AF hit rate is below my expectations. The camera takes a "long" time to aquire focus, and does not meet my AF tracking "expectations". Seems like my old D1x was (is) better, and my D90 seems a little better in the AF department.

I have read some of the postings on this topic in the forums. Have the camera in 9 point AFC, not AFA, release+focus, normal tracking, no D Lighting, 3.5 FPS in Continuous low, manual exposure, manual white balance, and so on

What am I missing? Only 2 more games this year.
