Re: Stupid focus question of the day

A few good suggestions above already and I will throw in image stabilisation. If you are hand holding does you camera have IS and if so is it switched on? If however the camera was on a tripod was the IS switched off? When stationary on a tripod some image stabilisation systems can actually introduce softness due to movement of the lens so they need to be switched off.
