Can someone help me understand why my D7000 while in auto focus mode has trouble focusing indoors. I frequently find that I will press down part way on the button to focus, it will focus and then blur out. I end up having to use the manual focus ring and by then the picture is gone. I first thought it was lighting or difficult patterns per the manual. But just tonight while in our sink bathing our granddaughter with a light overhead, experienced the same problem. Very frustrating. My daughter's cheaper Sony A55. camera works so much better.

This seems very basic and something that should not be happening. I have read about back focusing, but this does not seem to be the problem..

I am using a DX 16-85 1:3.5 - 5.6GED lens, which is my everyday lens.. I have experimented why fewer focus points and different AF modes.n doesn't seem to have any impact. My hope was that with fewer focus points and AF-S mode that I could make the problem go away.

I am a novice wanna be, but this problem is highly irritating.. I am sure that I am simply dong something wrong... Help please!
