There was a note by the American Ken Rockwell who gives a good report into mainly Nikon equipment He mentions in one of his test reports that his F100 and I think the F80 did not like the Nikkor 28/105D lens and the focussing was not quite right. I had one of these lenses a while back and certainly didn't have a problem with it on my F100. It may be down to the particular lens/camera you are using.
The only lens I have ever had which didn't like the focussing of both a F100 and a D200 was a Tokina 80-400. That was put down to old and not fully compatible electronics because when it was focused manually, it was superb.
