I've just started dabbling with astrophotography using the XT1 and 56mm and had no problems with manual focus. Last night I thought I'd give the 18-135 a go. So I'm in live view, focus, take a shot, then review to check focus. When I go back to live view the focus point has shifted. While it was near the infinity mark originally, its shifted to around the 10metre mark!

If I just shoot without reviewing then the focus point doesn't shift but obviously that's not much use with astrophotography. I've scoured the setup menus but there's nothing obvious there that I can see.

Any thoughts anyone, or is this just a "feature" of this lens? None of my other lenses to this - 16, 35, 56, 100-400.


Is your 'pre-AF' on?

Just a guess. Don't know if it actually works when in MF mode, but maybe worth a look?
