Focus question/problem with nikon d7100
3 months ago

With my Nikon d7100 and nikon 300f4 lens with tc1.4II  I aim my lens at the sky and the lens , in a choppy, jerky manner, focuses down to about 8-9 ft and than locks up. This is in af-c mode and using any of the dynamic area modes 9-21-51.

If camera is in af-c and single focus point than lens focuses to the infinity mark on the camera without hesitation.  Is this behavior normal for af-c and dynamic focus modes.  It seems I have had a lot of trouble achieving focus with birds in flight and trying to find out if the camera has a problem or I am doing something wrong.  I am kind of new with digital cameras so still learning.  Any help would be appreciated.
