Re: Info on shot-to-shot speed would be greatly appreciated.

Recently experienced this issue while shooting fall foliage. I could see the camera's inabilities if I were simply shooting a cluster of colorful leaves on a tree from a distance, but I always tried to get a branch (something darker) or two in the shot as well. The focus box did turn green and I heard the beep. Still, the image was totally out of focus. Do you think that I still may not have had enough contrast for it? Why did I get the green box and beep, if it wasn't in focus, then? Never experienced this issue until the recent fall foliage shoot.
