Z50 problem focusing on horizontal lines?
1

Anyone else run into issues with Z50 having problems focusing on horizontal lines?  I ran into it when testing ethe Z 16-50 DX lens.  I was focusing on a stack of papers, figuring all the edges would be a good focus and sharpness test.  I wasn’t able to get a sharp focus on the papers. (I was using AF-S and Single-point area mode.)

Later I discovered on page 53 of the user manual this statement:  “The camera may be unable to focus using autofocus in the following situations:  The subject contains lines parallel to the long edge of the frame.”

Questions:

Do other Nikon cameras have this problem?

Are there any tips or tricks to work around this issue?

(My inexperience with the camera might be part of the problem also.)

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Charlie
