Thanks, but I was looking for the autofocus settings or patterns, not the metering pattern. Do you have it set for single, 9, 21 or 51 points? Regular or 3D? Did you change any other AF settings? That's the kind of info that would help. Also, it would help if you didn't save your jpegs in a way that strips out the EXIF data. It's one of the things that might help us diagnose the problem. Knowing if the above images are 100% crops vs. the whole image also helps.

Personally, I wouldn't do any AF fine tuning until you've eliminated other causes for the problem.
