Re: NEX 7 autofocus problem

What focus mode are you using (area, spot, etc)?

The focusing issue with the NEX series caused me to sell my old NEX and leave for an SLR, only to come back again due to my love of the small size and incredible capabilities, if only I could get it to focus.

I'd suggest spot focus, and see if that helps. Also as you found out manual focus can be better. Read up on using DMF with peaking and see if that helps too-it's a different way of doing things but works well in the end.

You'll probably work through it. You must have one heck of a camera store that allows returns after 7 months! It's under warranty, but even my local camera shop won't take a return after that long.
