My recollection of FoCal's instructions is that they say "you may have a problem if any of the numbers are below 0.50". Although your numbers are not uniform across the frame, you may not actually have a problem. The outer AF points on all the Nikon SLR's I've owned have been somewhat less reliable than the centre ones.

I'm sure FoCal and similar tools can be very useful, but I'm equally sure they are causing us to worry about stuff that never concerned us in the past
