Sorry, I don't have this installed and won't be installing it. The camera focused where I placed the focus sensor box, perfectly over both faces. Literally couldn't have been any better. Even on further testing slightly off setting left to right or up and down didn't help the system grab focus. I know you are thinking "user error", but in most other situations I get 100% perfect focus. I have been using DSLR's since they where created, I know what I am doing. The system just can't handle what I want it to be able to do...

I want to find out what the problem is and to be able to know that you have to know where

the camera focuses......

You have so many times said you understood my thread and you dont have that problem and now

we see that the camera does focus on the wrong spots and not where you put the focus.....

lets find out why .....
