Yup. The best is better. Poor technique, simple ineptitude, and reluctance to learn how AF patterns work on an F100, F5, D7000 or D3 get my vote for poor results, not the hardware alone. Pro sports film shooters back in the day relied on burst shooting, too. Why do you think high firing rates were key features on pro film Nikons and Canons? So much for anticipation. AF was a godsend for sports and PJ.

Sample variation is part of using mass-produced items. But so far I'm not seeing sufficient incidence to suggest a pattern.
