Hi Mark,

Thanks for the post, my problem is not with out of focus photos but focusing each time when there is a new variable added to the scene. As posted earlier, while friends keep snapping up with their mobile, my A6000 takes that bit 1 sec extra to lock and then snap which delays the process and I'm not enjoying the experience.

My method: I do manual focus and use focus peaking !

Works really great and better, imho, than the theorical methods.

Lens focus distances are often inaccurate and may vary with temperature.  With focus peaking, you really see what is in focus.

I suggest you try it, see what happens when you change the focus distance or when you stop down.

I use thus method mostly for landscape photography to replace the hyperfocal method.
