No micro-af adjustment is also a pain. I've owned 4 A5XX(A500, 2x A560, A580) bodies and 3 of them needed to be manually adjusted by opening the little area near the tripod mount and adjusting the screws to get reliable AF with fast primes. Again this is something that is typical of this class of camera(no Micro AF adjustment), though the QC as far as front/back focusing goes seems to be pretty bad on a5XX cameras.

I downloaded the a580 user manual from Sony. There is no mention of the micro-af adjustment. Please clarify.

Read this post by zackiedawg. He explains the procedure.....
