Canon EOS 450D Focussing

Hi,

I am new to digital photography, having previously used a Konica TC-X SLR.

I have bought a Canon EOS 450D, and am using a Tokina AT-X 165 Pro DX 16-50mm lens with it.
I have recently been on holiday in Scotland, taking landscape photographs.
When viewed back at home, the images seem sharp until I zoom in. The foreground then seems sharp, but the middle and far distances seem out of focus on some of the photos.
I am using the camera in the "basic" modes at the moment, so had it set on Landscape.
My question is, is there a problem with the camera itself, or is it more likely to be something to do with the way I have the camera set up? I haven't altered the settings since I bought the camera, and wondered if it's to do with the metering?

The images I am getting would be OK for a 6x4 print, but much larger and sharp edges become less defined.

Any help gratefully appreciated!

Richard Roper.

Re: Canon EOS 450D Focussing

Many Thanks Dabhand16, much interesting reading there. Time for some experimentation!
I was discussing the issue with a friend at work, and he was coming up with suggestions that the lens may need re-calibrating etc. I will try this method first!

Richard.
