Re: FA50mm AF very bad? Pardon me?

Hi Daniel, you are missing the point - the problem is NOT with the lens as I stated in my first post - the problem is with the camera!

The FA50 is fine - it is almost identical if not identical to the M 50 I own in terms of IQ and yes that makes me very happy - the focusing problem is not a problem with the FA50 - it is a K10 problem (in fact I think a battery problem) and it does it with ALL auto focus lenses not just the FA50. There is nothing to debate about the FA50 here its a fine lens and it works as promised - its the AF accuracy of the camera in indoor tungsten lighting that is the real issue.

I thought you are happy with FA50mm1.4.

And if you change your mind that its autofocus is very bad, there
are thousand in here who would confirm that it is not. And I am
definitely the first one.

Try it this way. Go into a pitch dark small room and use
FA50mm1.4 and the built in flash, its autofocus has no trouble at
all. That tell you all.
Try it yourself.

Im not sure what youre getting at here? The AF was very bad with
the FA50mm at first so I had to focus manually to get my object in
focus - then I threw the battery in the charger and with a full
charge the AF was much better. What doesnt make sense?
