Hi,

Looking at your image, just above the number pad is a large black area that I would guess slightly forward of the numbers you wanted the camera to focus on. It's a great big high contrast target that the CDAF system might prefer to acquire.

Instead of using center focus, how about doing the same with the flexible focus spot? I believe it's more precise, and you can use it just like center focus simply by not moving it.

I've no complaints about AF precision using this focus mode (and I am fussy about focus).
