Interesting post, and informative.

I don't have a d7000 but have similar problems with my D3 and dynamic focus, there are situations where the camera simply can't know which is the area/point you wish to focus on, so it does it's best, this system is far from perfect and it's why I often resort to single point af on my D3.

for birds in flight the success rate for my d3 when using single point focus is damn near 100% providing of course I keep the focus point where I entend it to be.

With dynamic it will often focus on the area i'm not interested in, again the human brain can outsmart even the best cameras.

regards

Tony
