How's your AF custom setting setup (a1)? Is it Release + Focus, Focus + Release, etc.

If it's set to a release priority, the lens camera may have lost focus, then allowed you to continue to release while it tried to reacquire. I've seen this happen with my D4 as well when doing birds, and I'm set to Focus + Release.

I think - but could be wrong - that unless you have it set to "Focus", it can and will release even if a hard AF confim has not happened.

That, or both of us should send our cameras in!
