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

In autofocus modes, I have figured out that my NEX7 focuses on the areas that are the brightest.

People always say the AF picks the areas with the most contrast.  But in my experience, that just is not correct.

In the picture with the blurry face, if you look in the left hand side you see a brighter area of foliage that is in focus.  Just as an example.
