I think that's how it is designed. If you want to take a burst of shots, you don't want the focus returning to the center after the first shot. The downside is what you're experiencing.

I just confirmed that it works that way on my 6500 too.

Thanks and, yes, I understand this although I thought that with af-c and wide tracking it would re-focus with each shot (maybe not?).

However, although I've not been out since the original post, I was playing about last night and disabled all touch functions (which I never use anyway) and I couldn't replicate the problem. I need to get out properly later and do a full test but I do wonder if I was accidentally touching the screen whilst taking a shot.

I'll update later but thanks again for taking the trouble to post.

Regards,

John.
