Hi people, I just registered because I'm having some issues with focusing. Let me start by saying that I am a complete novice to photography, and I never touched anything but compact cameras until lately, when I retrieved my dad's Yashica SLR from the depths of some cupboard. I'm now reading a lot on the internet, and trying things, but as said in the title, I'm having trouble with the adjusting the focus: The focusing distances on the lens simply don't match up with the distance the objects are away from me. I made a test to get it straight. I measured exactly one meter to the object, adjusted the lens to one meter - blurrrrr. To get the subject even remotely sharp, I had to turn the ring until infinity, and even then it wasn't that sharp. On the other hand, I can focus things that are only about 40cm from me blazingly sharp, even though the lens should just go down to 0,5, but to do that I have to set the focus to about 1m! What do you recon, is it a problem with the lens, or with the camera? Or am I doing something wrong? I have another lens, a Carl Zeiss, and it won't focus properly either, but I know my dad always said that lens wasn't working correctly... Thanks for any help!
