EDIT: You may still need to adjust Fine AF though.
Thanks Ross. I don't have immediate examples at hand, but I tried to take some shots of a distant helicopter yesterday that showed the problem pretty clearly (or not clearly, if you see what I mean!). The subject was against a clear blue sky (I know, a rarity in Blighty) ao I don't think it's AF area related. Other examples I've had have been on landscape shots with distant tress with nothing in a nearer focal plane to upset the AF. I'll take some shots later and post to show some examples.
