Olympus 25mm problem... or Operator problem?
5 months ago

These two shots were taken in the same way, same time, etc. with my new Olympus f/1.8, tripod mounted, IS off, 2 second delay, auto WB. Matrix metering, one is AF and the other is manual focus on exactly the same spot.

I'm used to the 'kit' 12-50 with a widest f/3.5 aperture, so this kind of narrow DOF is new to me and I don't know what's going on. Is the aperture causing the camera to AF somewhere else than what it shows in the VF? Do I have to always use manual focus at this wide an aperture?

Any and all comments appreciate...
