Thanks for the reply

what about the old 18-55mm kit. Does it use PDAF?

if not will using it solve the problem?

Confirmed, this back-focusing problem is also present on my NEX-6.

To answer Jefftan's question, I tested using the old 18-55 kit (updated lens firmware) and it does not have a back-focus problem.

At this point we can assume that this is a widespread problem, so I really hope Sony is aware of this and come out with a firmware update as quickly as possible.

It would really help if DPReview's NEX-6 review will state this problem, so the problem'll gain more exposure.

In the meantime, I'll try contacting Sony support.
