I've had a DiMAGE A2 for a couple of months now and I'm growing increasingly disconcerted with the frequency of out of focus shots. I haven't been able to identify a particular type of shot that is out of focus -- seems like it happens at all focusing ranges and in all lighting conditions. Anyone have any experience with this?

Yeah, the A2 employs a faster but less sophisticated AF system than the A1 this means with some A2s the AF doesn't get an exact lock every time. Though the A2 I borrowed didn't have and AF problem, often I'd find a target close to the object I wanted to focus on then dial-in the last bit on the MF ring (the A2 has a MF priority system which lets you over-ride AF at any time by using the MF ring), as my target was soft and lacked the contrast for the AF to lock in.
