AF Mode & AF Area Mode
In reply to phoman, Oct 17, 2012

Perhaps I've missed in this thread, but it would be important to be really clear about the OP's AF settings.

AF "Mode" is AF-S or AF-C set with the rear dial. Either should work.

AF "Area Mode" is Single-Point, Dynamic-Area (9, 21 or 51 pt), 3-D Tracking, and Auto-Area, all set with the front dial. I would always want Single-Point for full control. The worst is Auto-Area where the camera trys all kinds of things and is totally inconsistant. If the OP used this, it might explain his problem.
