X100 users. Focus confirmation
Nov 18, 2012

I have a focus issue qusestion. Using OVF with the focus window centered, green confirmation and locked focus I have one to many out of focus shots. Example ; I was photographing an event, three people head and shoulders filling most of the frame. Locked focus (green confirmation) on LEFT person and reframed. ALL were out of focus but, ready for this, some distant sea grass was in focus on the top RIGHT of the frame. Yes it was set to the center frame and green conformation was lighted.

I even switched to using and holding down the focus lock button just in case my finger released pressure on  the shutter button yet still had some out of focus shots.

I have been over and over the manual and have set the focus for the center and even added the adjusted focus frame option which I assume is for parallax maybe.

So how is your autofocus, are you having issues like this ? Is this considered normal?

I really like the camera and it seems well suited for who's who events but the out of focus shots.....oh dear.
