Seems you are right.  My test methods were totally wrong.  I selected my test subjects poorly in all cases.  In closeup, not enough contrast. I outdoor landscape, again not enough contrast.

Anyways, I just setup a bunch of objects on a table with lots of contrast on their surfaces and all the points selected focused properly when selected over each item (all at different depths).  I used f1.8 so I could be sure the focus was where it should be.

Thanks, I was worried there for a while.
