Shooting straight down with 24-70 mm II -- possible?

(1/1)

Shawn L:
Testing out a new 24-70 II (after running it through Fo-Cal three times, thanks again for everyone who helped with that :)), and some of the photos are sharp. But those where the camera is steeply angled down, often aren't.

Is that expected? Do others see the same thing?

I don't notice any lens creep, but could it be so miniscule that I wouldn't?

Sorry for my ignorance :/

Cheers.

If you have your camera set for AI Servo and are shooting straight down and happen to be closer than MFD, the camera will take the shot, even if focus is not achieved.  That can give you oof images,

Shawn L:
Thanks, once again, Mt. Spokane.

I am shooting in One Shot. May I'm just doing something wrong. Maybe it is still a MFD issue. I'm still getting used to the lens.

The shutter will not close in one shot mode unless AF is achieved.  Of course, at close distances, the depth of field can be thin, and if you move just a little after half pressing the shutter, it could change the focus.
