    I have been reading many reviews of these two cameras. I was just about to
    purchase the A2 when I read a review by Keff Keller in Digital Camera
    Resource Page. In that review he complained that on two different A2 cameras
    he tried, he had a significant number of out of focus images even though the
    AF said they were in focus. He had the images in the review on the website
    and they looked like the camera should have had an easy time getting the
    focus correct. I have not read this complaint in any other of the A2

    Can any of you who have used an A2 comment on this for me?

    I haven't used an A2, but I have read many comments on the A2 and
    A200 on dpreview's K/M forum, although not recently (several months
    ago). From that I conclude that misfocusing does occur, but fairly
    infrequently, maybe 5% of the time. Some have said that the
    mis-focusing could be easily seen in the EVF, so they didn't have a
    real problem with re-focusing the camera. I imagine that with its
    much higher resolution EVF, it's a good deal easier to see slight
    focusing errors in the A2. Gross errors would be noticeable in
    either camera.
