Hello all

Several questions regarding OLY-TCON

All too often the blue brackets either do not light up to indicate in focus and often they do yet the picture does not look sharp in the view finder or on my pc at home.

What is the reason for changing the focus setting to aux. wen a aux. lens is in use?

the blue brackets:?

Bill, it may be time for an eye exam
I have run a lot of tests using different settings with the Tcon on the dx7590. My conclusion--it doesn't matter wether or not I use aux lens focus....One thing that does make a difference is landscape mode, I can't get good focus with it using the tcon, so if youre using that, try without it

Dan's right on both counts. Also you must remember that the camera may get it's focus from an object between you and your subject or behind the subject. Just because it says it's in focus doesn't mean your target is the focal point!

I only use Auto and Shutter Priority.

I wear bifocals. Eye exam has been the same for last year. I know they are becoming bad when I can't read the TV guide.

I often ger 2 sets of focus brackets saying in focus and it is not always the truth.

Here is the picture I was talking about.

Is there a reason to set camera to aux. lens when a aux. lens is in use ?

The reeds or grasses in front of the bird will throw off the focus some Bill!
