    Don't put too much faith into the autofocus. It can suffer accuracy problems.

    That's not what I meant. If it's sometimes focusing, then that probably means that there isn't enough light, or your trying to focus on something with no detail. Use the center focus point, because it can focus on both horizontal and vertical detail. If your in a dark place, raise the flash so that it can fire an af-assist beam.

What does one gain by handing over any of the above to electronics? In my opinion, nothing whatsoever. And one stands to lose a lot, as evidenced by your N55 experience.

    Get a mechanical camera. They're cheap and plentiful on the used market, vastly higher in materials and build quality, and do the camera's job so close to perfectly that it's not worth worrying about their individual flaws and drawbacks. If you still want a Nikon after your N55 problems try an FM2N.

    Well said.
