The first image is the full, the second is the crop in each post. Sorry I use Lightroom, it does not show focus point location, and the af point was perfectly over the face in both, using the centre point, I have reviewed this on the d800 screen. You obviously do not believe me and that is fine, but I know what I am dealing with here.

I wouldn't work from the assumption that people don't believe you - most are asking questions in an earnest effort to help.

In your OP you talk about the difficulty with low contrast targets. How well does the focusing work for what you consider high-contrast targets?
