Hi there, I'm new here and I'm from Canada. (hope that is ok)
I'm having an issue getting proper focus with my NIKON d7000 and 50mm f1.8G lens. Anytime I take a picture of anything weather its people or objects its almost never in proper focus. The only way I can get it in proper focus is when I use live view or I manually focus. It doesn't matter what focus mode. I'm really getting frustrated. So many shots are ruins. Is there something I might be doing wrong? I understand that at f1.8 its almost impossible to get focus because the DOF is so small. I usually try to shoot at f2.8 or even f3.5.
I really need tome help here. I've tried everything I know do to.
I have even raised my shutter speed and shot in manual because I thought that maybe it was just my hand shaking but I set it on a tripod or table and I still can't get proper focus. I've also played with the AF fine tune and it still won't get proper focus.
Thanks for any help. I do have some pictures I can post later to show you what I mean.
