Most camera instructions say to turn off 'image stabilization' when using a tripod.

It might be a good idea to read previous posts before posting silly comments. Just a suggestion.

You do know that IS stands for image-stabilization, right?
I just hope you understand English.

You posted a question on a public forum asking for help and advice, If you can't deal with remarks that don't suit you, maybe you should be using a paid customer help line.
People are trying to help you. Unfortunately, you have not provided sufficient information to enable us to diagnose your problem. More definitive information would likely result in more cogent remarks.

actually, the OP's reference to the 'other' forum gave the answer - it is a normal perspective / zoom 'optical confusion' which I duplicated until I more rigorously took the two shots and viewed them at same pix dimensions - no difference in focus

set up your tripod so that you can flip the camera 90 deg. w/o any other change or movement and you will find exactly the same focus although the subject will 'move' in the frame
