A few questions:

- What autofocus pattern are you using and have you modified any of the custom functions related to autofocus (beyond the ones needed to enable AF-On)?

- Also, do you see the issue when you're photographing birds against a clear sky or is it just when you have background clutter?

- Finally, pictures help a lot. Can you post a few illustrating the problem?
