JeffKohn said:But I agree with Beezle it may be hard to judge from this one shot whether you have a camera problem, since there could have been some last-second subject movement. Also depending on how exactly the focus sensor lines up with the visible bracket it may not have actually caught enough of the eye to grab solid focus.

But if the subject's head moved back a tiny bit before exposure, the AF system may not have had a chance to adjust focus (especially if Focus Lock-on was enabled). Also looking at the indicator, it's mostly on the area under the eye and not the eye itself. If the actual sensor isn't exactly aligned with the indicator it could be trying to focus on the skin underneat the eye which is pretty low-contrast.I believe that the red focus bracket is superimposed over the area of the image where it was the moment the exposure was made, not the actual point where you focused unless nothing moved.
