canon 70D focus problem
7 months ago

I have a problem focusing with three primes so far: I bought the 50mm 1.4 and thought it's defective, so returned it and bought the 50mm 1.8, and again thought it's defective, and this one is the last one.

The 2 images are examples: the first one via the optical view finder, and the second one via the live view on screen.

It gives an impression about what I meen.

I have the 18-135mm kit lens, and I barely can appreciate any difference in the sharpness of the pictures taken with the optical VF or in live view.

Does that mean the camera is defective?

I tried fine adjusting the focus, from -20 to +20 and there was no difference. All pictures taken with the 1.8 lenses are blurry.

If the subject is very close, let say 4 feet, the pictures are sharp, but further than this, the pictures are blurry.

Shall I return the camera?

Thanks.

Canon EOS 70D
