How accurate should I expect AF on a 35mm 1.8 to be?
8 months ago

Basically I am finding that on f/1.8 my 35mm is about 5mm off on focus on small subjects. I toolk some shots to shot it with a measuring cutout... but of course now I can't find it to show you all (it was on a tripod and all etc).

This is a handheld example though:

Sorry for the bad example, I'll try and find the correctly done one's as fast as I can. The last day of my 45 day return window at BestBuy ends tomorrow.

EDIT:  Sorry about that: The blue is where the focus was set by the AF system, the red is what is sharpest in the shot.
