I'm having trouble with digitals too, in their response to low light, and how they "decide" to take the picture, and I'm using the Nikon 8800, which is supposed to be a fairly good all around camera.
Of course, I'm hoping to get enough funds to get a D200, so I can keep my inventory of existing lenses working, but even that seems to have issues for the way I like to shoot.
I like to get my picture when I push the button, even if exposure, lighting, or focus is not perfect. I'd rather have *SOME* picture, than none at all, and I'm getting a *lot* of none's and even pictures firing off 1-2 seconds after I push the shutter.
I hated the autofocus film cameras for the "hesitations" but this seems almost an unbelievably long delay.
And, the problems with autofocus, and some manual focus digitals in low light is also "disturbing" to me. I had a great investment in high-end film equipment so I could see (focus) in low light, even if my exposures were 1+ seconds.
