J5+FT-1+300mm/f4 focus problems

i've had some suspicions for some time now that the J5 with this combo totally fails to get an accurate focus lock leaving the shots looking soft, i have no idea why it happens or why it only happens every now and then, all the equipment is up to date regarding firmware and the same lens will work fine on the V1.

Using my new tripod today the J5 was simply hopeless, so i swapped over to the V1 and no problems, stuck the J5 back on and no problems.

Anyone had anything similar with the J5 and FT-1 as it's really frustrating and make no sense at all.
