And I am back
The A77 and Sony lens couldn't focus correctly... I could use micro adjust to get it sharp at 50mm, but then it was way off at wider scales and the other way around.. Not just a bit off, but completely unusable. I blamed myself first, but then had someone else (who has a Sony A99) look at it and found the same problem.
It is a shame really, it is a VERY nice camera, and when the shots are sharp, they are amazing.
