Is there a chance that you're actually /convincing/ yourself here that you have difficulty working in low light with manual focus? Because, I am sure you would outdo be fair and square with this level of technique.

> I miss a lot of shots due to missed focus. That doesn't mean that I don't get *any* sharp. :-) It's just that to get a few sharp, I have to shoot a lot of photos. Taking my time does help, when I have the time available to to take.
> Our dojo is having its big annual seminar this week and I'm one of the photographers for it, and despite there being lot of light (ISO 640, f/2.8, 1/80 sec) I'm flat out missing focus on a lot of the shots, which leaves me with the same old problem of sorting photos, to find the sharpest ones, then looking through those to see which are decent shots. Or alternatively, sorting out the decent shots, and throwing out the ones where I totally blew the focus.
Shoot at f4, 1/40th or bump the ISO if you need the 1/80th. That f2.8 is asking a lot in terms of focus accuracy.
