Received the lens yesterday and have not experienced inaccurate autofocus issues as of yet. I do notice though that when the lens automatically prefocuses, it tends to go back and forth with some subjects. I've only tried the lens indoors, though. Is what I'm experiencing normal behavior?


I shoot with flexible spot, I prefer it to center focus because the focus area is smaller.
I let the ( flexible ) focus point in the center, focus on the subject and then recompose.
The focus assist light is disabled.
With these settings the focus is fast enough even in low light conditions, with this lens, or the other SEL lenses - I don't find any of them to be too slow..

I shoot w. flexible spot as well but rather, move the icon to where I want it to focus. Do you find that focus-recomposing sometimes causes focus errors, especially at wider apertures?

My problem with the lens is that it automatically prefocuses back and forth sometimes. Maybe the camera is swaying slightly with my minute hand movements and thus in doing so, altering the focus point? I don't have a tripod to confirm, sadly.
