Re: That first photo comparison

The first photo being compared has so much large, featureless area in it that one would have to be careful and maybe try multiple focusing point attempts to be sure of getting it in focus. Big blank areas don't give the autofocus much to work with.

All the three comparisons were part of the same image in different frame locations.

I have the 18-55 kit lens and never have encountered such poorly auto-focused images, but I do make sure that the camera has a realistic shot at focusing on something.

Do you think even the center frame is out of focus. I made sure that the center focus points blinked before I took shot.

Do people really spend $700 on a camera so they can take a picture of a duck?
