SEL1018 lens and focusing - need help
May 30, 2013

I  am going on a trip and bought the 1018 lens for my next and have not been having success in figuring out the best way to get a well focussed  landscape.

I tried multi focus points, assisted focusing,  and manual focusing, but I seem to get poor detail through the whole thing.

Here's an example test photo -  Aperture at F22, ISO100 and I long exposure

IF you can't see it, the location is here

What can I do to make this lens work?
