Aloha,

Your photo looks great!

"you set up sharpnes for 2-3 m that wrong", tell me more, I'm not sure what this means.

The A/F point for the sample I posted was on the table, near the first coconut tree on the left. I took other test shots with the center point A/F on objects much closer to the lens (3-4 meters), and again the foreground was the only thing in focus. Same results when all 9 A/F points were selected. I tried with both spot, partial, and center metering.

I didn't use a U/V filter, but did use the lens hood it comes with.

Thank you,
Alan
