Which AF area mode did you use ?
In reply to Sven Hedlund, Apr 28, 2012

-Single-point AF

  • Dynamic area AF

  • Auto area AF ?

I Open your picture in Capture NX and the focus point used by the camera isn't available neither is the Af-Area mode.

If you use Auto area AF, I could understand why the camera misses a lot, because the background is much brighter thant the subject.

Have you tried Single-point AF ?
