Re: Nikon F4 and one AF point issues - any tips and tricks?

I can't see for sure that the focus is not working. I'm unfamiliar with the F4, but, it could relate to how big the focusing point really is (not even how it LOOKs in the viewfinder). If focusing in the center of each shot, I would expect focus to be in the grass instead of the horse. With the no-contrast tree in the second shot, I would expect the focus to be poor, UNLESS the focus point is so huge that it would overlap edges of the tree, and, even then, it might be a matter of luck whether the tree edge or the background was used.
