Late evening sun and AF performance

I was shooting some inside shots yesterday evening with light provided by sunlight shining through a window. The sun was just above the horizon. The AF was just a little off on most of the shots -- consistant across 3 diffrent lenses.

Was this late day sun to blame or was I?

The light was probably warm enough to cause the dreaded tungsten light AF failure.

Yes, that must have been it. It was certainly warm -- a beautiful orange-ish glow. Thanks.
