Hi all.

 

I haven't used my 60mm much lately, in fact I don't think I have used it since the last firmware update!

 

So, I thought I would take it out and give it a good thrashing last Sunday as the weather and light was pretty good. I have always used AF by half pressing the shutter button, finding the process to be quite adequate with a good/acceptable success rate.

 

This didn't seem to be the case on Sunday. I always shoot several pictures of the same scene to make sure I get at least one useable picture. Previously, ie. pre firmware update, pretty well all of the shots would be keepers. I was somewhat disappointed to find that in some cases I was struggling to find 1 shot from a sequence that I could use.

 

With the 60mm I always use the EVF.

 

I have done a bit of fiddling around and "I think", I might be getting a slightly quicker, and more reliable focus lock by using the camera set to MF and focussing with the AFL button.

 

Am I kidding myself here, or is anyone else finding the same?

 

I intend to go out tomorrow and shoot a whole load more using the AFL button method to see what happens.

 

Rich.
