"D5100 and 28 -300 focusing problems"


US
          

When shooting at or near the full telephoto with this and the kit 55-300 the autofocus loses the subject (usually flying birds against a featureless sky) after one or two rapid exposures and when it does, the attempted auto reaquisition takes the focus from near infinity down into the near macro range where it stalls and requires a manual refocus. Zooming out and pointing at some closer, high definition subject will also move the focus out towards infinity. It seems to do this no matter the focus settings - single point, AF-A,C, Dynamic, whatever. Because of the rather unique nature of each target aquisition and flight path, it is not something I can systematically test. Any suggestions from more experienced photographers? Tom Forker
