Re: 1.4 & 2.0 magnification/zoom AF better?

I'm not sure how the focus could really be better. The camera is not using the sensor to focus. The focus mechanism has no idea whether or not you are employing the 1.4x or 2.0x magnification. It should not impact focusing at all. I'm not saying that the pictures you took were or weren't in "better" focus, but I think, if you were to do more comparative picture taking, I think you would find the theory that 1.4x or 2.0x improves focus doesn't really hold up.

Just my 2 cents.
