Focus fine tune is great for micro adjustments. But I am constantly having back focusing problem that seem to be more serious than micro ones. Look at the 100% crop below. I included the focus points as overlaid in Apple Aperture.

D600 + Nikon 80-200 f2.8D ED.
Aperture 3.2 Speed 1/4000
Autofocus AF-S, distance 4.5m

As you can see the red FP on the foreground guy is clearly out of focus while the background guy is in focus.

This is just one example. Most other shots come out similar.

Does this look to you guys as something correctible by camera micro adjustments? Or could it be a lens issue instead?

Thank you for any help.

Bo
