Sounds like you need to turn it on.

See pg 44 - it is doing exactly what you told it to do - there was no lock-on on your subject. It focused on whatever had the most contrast within the AF points.

What do you have focus tracking lock on set at? Long, short or off?

Off.

I usually set mine on short. For me its also best to use 9 point dynamic focus to keep the focus area down to a small size.

I will try 9 points and see if that makes any differences.

I live in western Oregon so lots of vegetation in the background a lot of the itme.

I can't remember the exact reason, but everybody was suggesting leaving this off in Nikon world. Anyway I will give it a try
