Hi guys. My Nikon 16-85 backfocuses with the camera. I went to Samy's Camera and the 18-55 also slightly backfocuses with the camera. My Nikon 35mm, 50mm, and Rokinon 85 1.4 work perfectly fine with the S5, SPECIALLY the Rokinon, it is DAMM sharp! What's up with that???

Is this a common known issue or am i the only unlucky one? The 18-55 now that i think about it, was the display/test lens at Samy's Camera, maybe i should go back and ask for a brand new one from a box and compare, and unfortunately they didn't have any new 16-85 in stock. Any experiences you may have regarding this?


If you manually focus, there will be no back or front focus. Also, there are non AF zoom lenses out there, too. They won't have the same troubles.
