Re: Wide aperture - Pictures out of focus

Focus adjustment doesn't cure the problem. The AF system simply is not accurate enough due to it's operating principle.

Additionally even if the AF seem to be quite accurate on one focusing distance on one light source, it doesn't mean it is when the light is different and focus distance is different.

PDAF (phase detect AF) is wonderfully fast and is great for tracking, but it's inherit problem is slight inaccuracy. For better accuracy you need either to use CDAF (contrast detect AF), if available, or manual focusing.
