DA 20-40mm autofocus
1 month ago

If you are a user of this lens I would like to know if you are happy with the autofocus results.

I do have autofocus set to AFS and set to focus priority

OK outside landscapes etc focus seams to be ok but close focusing say 10 ft seems to be hope for the best.

I shoot normally in the studio with my FA43 and everything goes well focus wise but the DA20-40 at 35mm f8 the results are hit and miss . I'm using K5 ll and although I have focus conformation the images are out of focus sometimes and I'm not talking just soft but out of focus there are no other items on the set for the autofocus to take a short cut, just a white plain background Not sure if anyone is having this sort of trouble but it is not a good feeling when photographing a model and this happens.

As you know it is ALWAYS the out of focus shot that is the best pose but can't be used!
