Did you take these shots in AF-C rather than AF-S focusing mode? Some people -- myself included -- have found in AF-C (even in single point mode, and definitely in a dynamic area mode), that if the camera does not find the target under the selected AF sensor to be sufficiently contrasty, and perceives that there is a better, more contrasty target under a neighbouring focus sensor, it will use that sensor rather than the one you selected.

Yep. It was taken in AF-C. Arent you supposed to use AF-c to compensate for movement? The point is - it's not accurate.
