    Okay im too lazy to google this & would rather some spoonfeeding.

    I got a lot more throwouts than usual with my last two shoots. These were landscape shots, something I dont normally take. I am yet to test it but I think my AF is slightly off when focusing on or near infinate. Is this adjustable? Is it hard to do / should I just take it to canon? I remember hearing about some adjustment screws near the shutter.

    Also I was shooting at around F18 with the thrifty fifty, so I would assume the focus would have to be pretty out? I also used my sigma 10-20 and thoes seemed OOF too.

    if you're shooting landscapes, its probably best to manually focus to infinity...that way, when you hit the shutter its not going to try to focus on some other object

    and using the registration mark on the lens is the best way?

    using the infinity mark is pretty accurate in my experience

    i'd go to near infinity, not infinity

    if you're really into landscapes, read up on hyperfocal distance focusing, it'll probably change your life :eek5:
