Does your E510 with kit lens mis-focusing
Aug 20, 2008

I took my daughter to a park for some shooting lately and found some of the shot (E510 + 40-150mm) missed focus. I am pretty sure I used the center focus point only (as I always to) and my object (the girl) is right in the middle of my composition and the focus confirmed by beeps, however the shot ended up having those flowers surrounding her focused. Such as the following shot.

But just right after the shot a better one could be obtained.

I found similar problem when shooting at home but since the distance is not this large in door I didn't bother looking into it. Do you E510 owners also have such problem? Or is it just my bad skill? How do I avoid this problem? Thanks!!
