Re: how can the NEX auto-focus miss these shots?

I find the 5R focuses very well. I use it quite differently. Never tried face detect.
I move the smallest focus square to the subject and shoot. Bottom button is can be set to move the square around or you can touch the screen. It calls it flexible spot under Menu --> camera --> auto focus area --> flexible spot. Turn off object tracking.

Focus and recompose sucks for so many reasons, here are a few - you have to do it every time and can miss expressions, you are moving the OSS around for no good reason rather than holding the lens camera steady, you can get backfocus due to hand movement or body sway from lock to shooting time.
