I can appreciate the focus issue with the C8080. Having been into photography as a pro and hobbiest for 35 years, I have worked with everything from 4x5 press cameras to pro 16mm. A few years back I started to shoot primarily digital. I recently upgraded from the Oly C3040 which gave me razor sharp images to the C8080. So far I have not been overly impressed with image quality in any mode - manual or full auto up to this time with the C8080.

Many of the images I have taken with both autofocus and manual focus tend to come out soft focus at best and downright blurry on some. Although no longer doing this as a profession, I can live with soft focus since many of my photos are now primarily of grandkids, but for the price and hype of this camera, it does appear to have some issues with focus problems much more frequently then it should.

I am not ready to sell the camera yet as I hope to find a solution to fit my needs and will continue to play with this camera. I had noticed some postings implying that some of the people having problems may have had depth of field issues. This could be the case for some, but it is odd that a number of people keep reporting the same issue with this particular model.

I don't claim to have a solution at this time, but just wanted to comment that this does not just appear to be an isolated incident for some individuals who may or may not be new to photography. :sad:

Were your settings on default when you took this?

No, the camera was in manual mode,
spot metering, iso-100, ap.-4.5 sp-1/100 sec.
The lighting was perfect. hope this helps.
