A7riii + FE 55mm F/1.8 Focusing Problem
1

I've had the camera for two weeks, and I have to say I'm pretty disappointed so far (especially considering how everyone seems to love this camera + lens).

I have three main problems:

1. AF does not seem accurate. It is consistently back-focusing, and I have confirmed this on a micro-adjust chart. However, as the AF data is read off the sensor, no micro-adjusting is possible!

2. Focus tracking (particularly eye-AF) simply doesn't work. While the little box indeed tracks the subject's eye, my shots are never sharp (perhaps related to the above point).

3. My images seem very noisy - far noiser than my A6000 with the same settings.
Am I doing anything wrong, or is there a common setting mistake causing any of these problems?

Thanks!

Sony a6000
