Re: out of focus

Hi Micky,

Just read your question and took a peek at your photos and EXIF data. If you take a good look at your EXIF data, you can see the following settings:

Metering Mode: Pattern+AF
Focus Mode : Single AF; S-AF, AF sensor
Metering Mode: Multi-segment
ISO Speed: 200

Ever tried the following settings:
Metering Mode: Center weight or Spot Metering
Focus Mode: Manual Focus; MF, AF sensor
ISO Speed: 100

i presume that you have to use a T-mount adapter ring to make photos with your E-420? This means that you have to set your camera manually. So this means also that you have to set your settings internally to manual. Otherwise your camera will try to adjust because of the AF-setting in the Focus mode and the way you have set the Metering mode (pattern+AF= same as ESP+AF). If you want to use Pattern it is better to set the pattern to ESP only. it's just a thought.
Hope I could help you.
