Using Autofocus in Live View
Use an AF-S lens. The desired results may not be achieved with 
other lenses or teleconverters. Note that in live view, autofocus is 
slower and the monitor may brighten or darken while the camera 
focuses. The focus point may sometimes be displayed in green 
when the camera is unable to focus. The camera may be unable to 
focus in the following situations:
• The subject contains lines parallel to the long edge of the frame
• The subject lacks contrast
• The subject in the focus point contains areas of sharply 
contrasting brightness, or includes spot lighting or a neon sign or 
other light source that changes in brightness
• Flicker or banding appears under fluorescent, mercury-vapor, 
sodium-vapor, or similar lighting
• A cross (star) filter or other special filter is used
• The subject appears smaller than the focus point
• The subject is dominated by regular geometric patterns (e.g., 
blinds or a row of windows in a skyscraper)
• The subject is moving
