    My husband got a Canon 50D and I got a Canon D10 for Christmas.

    His 50D will not take a sharp focus at 100% not matter what he or I try.
    My G10 does take very sharp photos at 100%. Does anyone have any ideas
    or is the 50D just a piece of junk?

    When you view the photo at 100% of its size.

    My 50D takes very sharp photos - I do use expensive lenses though. They
    don't look as sharp on the camera screen as they do on the monitor, but you
    soon get used to what good focus looks like on the camera screen. Also - do
    use the focus calibration provision; I had to set 2 L lenses off zero to get
    perfection.

    Thanks everyone, lens calibration took care of the problem.

    Do a search on google search for the eos 50D AF microadjustment.


    In the manual for the 50D pg 180 describes how to do an AF Microadjustment.
