This is not my D5200 or D7100 and the former isn't back focused at f8.  It's just soft compared to the D7100 because of the blur filter. Download the raws and see for yourself:

As pointed out many times...in this particular example the D5200 images is out of focus. That amount of blur is atypical for a normal D5200 or even D5100 image. Might be something else but that is simply not a typical shot.

No, it is most certainly not out of focus, it is merely soft.  The D7000 is softer yet.

I just rechecked. The D7000 image there is sharper. Very noticeable when set to same framing. Wonder if it's sample variation

AF On has about a 90% participation rate when polled in the FX forum.  The consumer models don't have a dedicated AF On button because the manufacturers are apparently convinced that would lead to confusion among the unwashed.  But assigning the button works fine.

One thing that always goes unmentioned in these threads is that this stuff takes practice, thousands and thousands of shots worth.  With practice, a 90% or better keeper rate for any normal subject should be achievable.

I may have missed it but, how is back-button focus relevant to the discussion at hand?
