i am trying to get an image with Flexible Spot on Nex5t, and focusing on a specific spot only, but it either doesn't focus on that specific spot, or it just focuses on everything together and doesn't blur the other unfocused spots.

Please advise if I am doing it correctly: I am choosing either the Program Auto or Aperture Priority shooting mode, then on Fn button I choose Flexible Spot (under Autofocus), hence I put 3 or 4 objects and try to focus on one of them ... however it focuses the whole 3 or 4 objects and not just focuses the selected spot... Or sometimes it blurs the selected spot and focuses on another unselected spot.

i am trying it repeatedly but it gives the same result.

any hints?

flexible spot will not control the Fstop like you need in auto mode(low) so you need to put the camera into P, M, or A, modes and control the F stop yourself.  The lower the Fstop the better your out of focus blur will be.
