I am a camera enthusiast rediscovering photography after a gap waiting for digital to get affordably good enough. I am was a film buff, Kodachrome, Velvia etc and slides mainly!.
I have a major back focus issue on A65 with Sigma 28-105 f2.8, Minolta 100-300 APO. I have several others as well but these are the worst.
The forums seem to find this is an issue with the A65. I have tested the lenses on an A77 and they are OK.
Although this happens with cameras because of mass produced tolerances the results I am getting are unusable. The camera can be returned to Sony for a few weeks with the lenses but I find it INCREDIBLE that this issue seems so prevalent. Interestingly the 18-55 kit has the same issue.
I have waited for Sony to produce the current A77 and A65 cameras and with a lot of MInolta glass was really looking forward to using this at the Olympics.
Sony technical support is a group of people in India using call scripts. The contact I talked to didnt understand back focus or APO lenses. There is no techinical support contact in the UK apparently for cameras. Nikon and Canon have understandably got the market sown up. Very sad.
Any experience from others and a quick fix is most welcome.
