Autofocus on D5200
2 months ago

Really enjoying the D5200 I got recently. Only thing I am struggling with a bit is the 39 point AF system. When set to AF-A, I find it is sometimes a little unpredictable at locking focus where I want it to. Is there a trick for that? Does it matter if it is close but not quite where I want it? I find myself switching to single point and doing the lock/refocus technique, but seems like a waste of having 39 points if you have to pick manually each time. Thoughts? I am sure I am missing something.
