Re: NEX 7 autofocus problem

For focusing close up where depth of field is very limited I would utilize the manual focusing option with the DMF and you will be able to see the actual focus and make it spot on and stay away from AF in this situation.  Close up portraits wide open with my Sony 50 mm are spot on looking at the eyelashes using this technique where the AF was more of hit and miss.  This is something so amazing that DSLR's don't know what they are missing even if they have the clunky live view.  I can honestly say coming from a Canon 1DsmkIII where the AF is excellent I seldom use AF on my nex7 because I have my screen set to black and white and focus peaking to yellow and I find it amazing and fast enough except for moving subjects which the NEX isn't known for.
