    Sal1870

    Hello,

    I've bought a A200 recently. Does the kit lens blur (give soft) images at 70mm or the problem is in my A200?

    Thanks.

    Get yourself to the camera store and slap on a SONY SAL DT 18-250 f/3.5-6.3 zoom. You may be pleasantly surprised at the flexibility and sharpness of this lens, replacing that inferior "kit lens."

    Just a suggestion.

    Try AF-S, Center Focus, center weighted metering and focus on the eyes.

    For a test though, focus on an object and try different settings to see if it gets better.

    welcome and good luck!

    I bumped up the sharpness on the camera it seemed to help.
