Let's see. To look sharp the photo must be within the DOF of the lens at that aperture and subject distance. How is this different from any other picture taken with any other camera and lens? I guarantee you it cannot be taken for granted that your PDAF system is going to accurately place the focus right on the subject til you have gone through a calibration procedure.

Jim is correct in every thing he said

This will be within DOF and yet, its still not sharp enough to see fine feather details. Jim is totally correct and yes, that does apply to even FF and long fast lenses. At that distance it doesn't matter how accurate your focus is within reason.

There are five ways around that problem and especially for BIF's .........

!: Use a longer focal length of top optics

2: Get closer

3: Get much closer

4: Get even more closer

5: Not close enough..... GET CLOSER !!

All the best and yep, get closer, Doh !!, that makes 6
