Thank you for posting this link. I verified that my lens is not a part of this recall.

EyeAF was enabled at the time.

Thanks to the other person who referred me to the A7Info application. It reveals that for this image, the focus point was indeed on his left cheek/eye area.

Another person suggested that the player moved during the exposure... he's standing still and its unlikely that he moved even slightly. Besides, the strobes would have frozen him in place due to their brief duration. Next time I will try high speed sync to rule this out absolutely.

By the way, I have many images from this session with the same problem... it's not just one image I'm having the problem with.

Thanks to everyone who commented thus far... I really appreciate it.

let me chime in... 10 days ago I got this lens. It was very sharp except when doing close-ups at long focal distances. Anything between 38 cm (min. focusing distance) and approximately 1 m appears as not focused properly (and I did extensive testing). Sent it to the local service center, apparently nothing seemed wrong. They did suggest to send it out to the main European service center as the local service didn't have the "high-end equipment", which I accepted. Now I'm waiting...

I'll post some pics if I find them.
