    Hi Folks,

    Just received a Sony Z1 for a shoot and I'm getting serious back focus problems. I zoom in on a subject, focus then zoom out and the subject pops out 3/4 of the way through the zoom.

    Is there something I'm missing here? I've read the manual cover 2 cover and can't see any way to adjust the back focus. Firstly (A) Can I adjust the back focus? (B) Has anyone else had a similiar problem?

    Any and all quick responses would be appreciated.

    First: Sorry, I'm German. "Back Focus" doesn't seem to give me any idea...
    Second: Never had that problem in half a year. I very often zoom in (even do the extended focus) and zoom out. Things stay in focus all the time. Perhaps you have some mechanical problem there.

    You might have the camera focus on auto which will affect the focus when you zoom out.

    yeah, sounds like you should check if it is on auto-focus. It might have deceived you since you can override the autofocus as a 'focus-assist'. Although it might still be a backfocus issue, 3/4 is too much in my opinion to be a fabrication problem.

    I have the same problem.
    But my backfocus issue is intermittent.
    Sometime it works sometimes it doesn't.
