I know the photographer makes a difference but I am getting annoyed with my nex 5R because sometimes it misses good shots where autofocus and the subject in question shouldn't be trivial to figure out it should be in focus. I don't always or want to change the focus point because sometimes there is just no time and it should be evident. Look here... what do you guys think? I had face detection on (regist faces) but I have no faces registered, regardless, why is it focusing on everything else but the subject in the center. I have multi-area focus mode. Is there a setting I am missing somewhere?

I use flexible spot focus because it has the smallest focus area, but I use it like center focus, I leave it in the center, I don't move it.

So, flexible spot in the center, half-press, focus and recompose, DMF on - you can see with the focus peaking where is the camera focusing.
