not sure why it started acting up today but taking video oh heron the focus point would jump around screen I have it locked so it shouldn't move from center... anyone seen this? turning off live view and back on recenters but it keep jumping in middle of videos

I have a hunch you're in Subject-tracking AF mode. (Looks like a bullseye, page 48 of one of the US manuals). When in that mode, my D500 focus reticle will move regardless of Focus Selector Lock switch position.

If you press in the mode dial at the base of the lens mount and simultaneously roll the front command dial, you can select between "Norm" "Target" "Face" and "Wide."

yep that was it... thanks... must have changed it accidentally...
