So I was messing around with my Canon 50mm 1.8 lens today taking some pictures of wall fixtures and noticed that the imges were a bit blurry. I switched over to manual focus, advusted the focus, and took a picture and then compared it with the AF shot taken and there was a huge difference. Having read the latest posts on here about filters I decided to take my filter off and try it out. I took some shots with AF and they turned out very sharp. So for some reason the filter is messing up my AF... Anyone ever had this happen? What can I do besides just leave the filter off? My filter is a Canon UZ HAZE filter by the way.:(

you sure you didn't just use the wrong AF points the first time?

Use only the center point and see if you can work it out. I know my 50 searches or screws up the focus sometimes...

I was using only the middle focus point when I tried it the first time.
