Initial production of Sony’s DSC-F717 Cyber-shot® digital still cameras have displayed inaccurate focusing under certain limited conditions. These conditions include ambient light low enough to activate the Hologram AF, at short distances, and higher zoom settings.

In order to determine whether or not your DSC-F717 has the issue, please check the following:

The Camera is a DSC-F717
The camera serial number falls into the below range:
1320001-1320404
1320407
1320409-1320422
1320424-1320425
1320427-1320430
1320432
1320434-1320440
1320442-1320463
1320465-1320468
1320470-1334250
1334801-1334900
1335251-1337694
1337883-1338610
1339051-1339550
Images are out of focus when using Hologram AF, typically, but not limited to, short distances and higher zoom settings. This issue will not occur with Hologram AF selected "off".
If your camera does meet the above criteria, please contact Sony to arrange for service. The inaccurate focus is the result of an improper Hologram AF focus parameter. The parameter can be adjusted by Sony Service Centers or Sony Authorized Service Centers in accordance with Sony’s limited warranty.

Forgot to mention, Quoted from www.sonystyle.com, under SONY DSC-F717 FAQ.

Hope I don't get sued for lifting the entire extract out from their website.

:p
