Re: D500 consistently missing focus?

Thanks for the reply. I was working from the iPad before I finished cup of coffee #1 this morning. The first series does look like it was grabbing the background. I believe this series of shots shows the phenomenon much more clearly. I often end up with her back end in focus, like the focus is trailing the subject. And thank you for the suggestion. I have tried both the "stickiest" and the most aggressive AF reacquisition settings but end up with the same results. What I can't shake is why my 750 just seems to work like Nikons AF always has. If anything the 750 is generally wider and should miss more! I am using FX lenses on the 500 for what it's worth. I've never had trouble like this.

edit: I want to say it's an error on my part but to end up with 2 usable images out of 100 is just crazy, right?

Even the most usable image looks like it missed focus just behind her ears:
