Re: Difficult Spider Shot with SX40 HS

I own a SX30 and found same problem many times.  It happened mostly when shooting tiny object few feet away with zoom.  For black object or thing that can't provide a clear texture, I could understand the difficulty.  But sometimes it seems just the limitation of the lens (or simply it is the nature of long zoom?) that you cannot focus at certain distance with certain focal length.

I got this feeling because more often when I either step further away with more tele or move closer with shorter focal length, I'll get the focus right.  Could some one tell me if that was a wrong thinking.
