I used the recommendations from Splashdown Divers.com (Intermediate User Settings) that recommended the AF Assist Light be switched to "Off." It was in that mode that I could not get the camera to lock on many easy subjects (with the 18-70 mm lense and a +4 diopter).
When I was directed to change the AF Assist Light to "On" at my local SCUBA shop, the D70 was immediately able to lock onto a subject (at least in the pool). During my next dive trip, I happily got the same results and my problem has been solved ever since.
Please give it a try to see if it works for you also. Good luck!
