Hazy photographs in Canon canon D550.

Unread postby SCORPIO » Tue Aug 02, 2016 10:13 am

I am using Canon D550 with Tamron AF 18 - 200 mm lens from last 3 years. From last 2-3 months it is not taking good photographs in Auto Focus mode. I have also given the lens for repair but result is still not very good. So I am planning to buy new camera or lens. One of my friend suggested to buy only a new lens. The camera have all the functions of modern cameras. What should I do, brought new camera with new lens or buy only lens?

Please suggest.

I agree with both of them above. Try a friends lens for few days then decide.
AF wont work great in low light places like our aquarium. I totally depend on manual focus for my fish pics with 18-55mm.

so how does lens AF perform in outdoors?

Not getting good result in outdoor. Some pictures are good but some are not so clear. Although the Manual focus is working well.

Did you check your diaptor settings? It's probably off tuned

Probably you sensor is dirty, get the body of the camera serviced.
