I have been using my D800 for about a year and have recently experienced problems with focus lock when using the new 80-400mm VR lens. I have the camera set up to use the rear AF-On button to achieve focus. This is primarily to shoot birds in flight. I am getting a lot of slightly out of focus shots and feel is is the gear and not me. Can anyone help? I am spoiling a lot of good shots.
