Auto focus
« on: August 19, 2012, 09:50:59 AM »
I have Canon 300d with 28-80mm.  Used auto focus to focus in the distance yesterday.  Seemed ok but zoomed in to find out it was out of focus!  Repeated and it was the same.  Is this normal?

Hello Alex.

I reckon that on zooming in you missed the original point of focus.

Why not zoom in first and then autofocus?
A bit like Victor Meldrew
