Re: Yes I agree (hence my follow up posts)

Mine is also set to +13 and the AF works good at a standart portrait distance (50D).

If I get close to the minimum focus-distance (about 0,4m) the front-focusing problem gets worse (over +20).

If I want to shoot at this distance I use the MF instead. I got an EF-S focusing screen and this works very good with my sigma lenses.
If I use a tripod also the live-view is a good option.

Cause of the very good AF-systems many of us forget to use the MF for specific shooting-situations, while your eye is still superior to any AF-system.
