K1 live view focus problems

Hi folks

My K1 is producing images that are out of focus when shooting in live mode, while sharp images using same settings and subject are obtained when shooting through the view finder.

Is anyone else experiencing this or have any suggestions as to how to fix it?

Thanks

John

Hi John

What lens or lenses are you using (make / model)? Also, are you using a small centre focus point in live view for your testing? How about AF.S / AF.C? Still subjects or moving?

Any examples - complete with EXIF data - would be very helpful to us in helping you The quality of the photos doesn't matter - we won't judge

Yes it is.
Those guys are just too smart. There is a known problem with the Tamron 70-200/2.8 and LV auto focus across several brands. I don't remember if there is a solution.

Well, that's good to know. Thanks all. I'll see if this happens with other lenses too or not.
