28mm A12 back focusing issues?
Jul 7, 2012

I find it very hard to get the 28mm A12 to focus correctly given a noisy background and in harsh sunlight (outdoor shoot). The same focus works very well at night.

In a typical morning shoot, i find that 7 out of 10 pictures are out of focus and the grass/treess behind gets the focus instead of the standing subject/person.

I've checked my settings, regardless of whether its point focusing or if i move the focus point tracker to the subject or focus-half-press-recompose i get the same issue.

Is this a known issue with the 28mm a12?
