Use a smaller AF centre box and recompose, or use the awesome eye AF feature if you using native lenses.

I have a NEX-7 and face detection works ok. I use its quite a lot even in M. However AF does not appear to be a NEX strength until perhaps now.

What is the eye AF feature? Is this only in newer models?

Thanks

Yes, I think the A7 and A7R are the first Sony bodies with this feature. Essentially you can press a programmed button and the camera will attain focus on the eyes.

See this video (from 50 secs and onwards):

It actually works in real life. Pretty awesome if you ask me.
