A77 and Zeiss 135mm 1.8 Focus issue or not?
Jun 27, 2012

I wonder about my zeiss 135mm lens with my A77. In the office I like to test its focus speed and sharpness and everything looks good and I am totally happy with results in that environment, but I was waiting in the car today and took a photo of a yellow flower bud and noticed that it focused lock but it wasn't exactly on the bud or at least the screen didn't look to be in perfect focus and I must have taken a dozen shots, not sure if any were in focus. So when I looked at them on the computer, I got one which is the best of the bunch but not perfect for pixel peepers and wonder if that is just the way it is or can I do better. Shutter speed was fast, the lens was wide open, ISO was 50 and I was leaning against my car door, spot focus, and the little green square was on the yellow bud for a dozen shots, but I wonder? Maybe the wind??? Anyone like to comment, the best focused photo below:
