I'd like to go on record that the back focus on my HPX500 is a constant issue as well. I'd don't take the lens off in between shoots and never use the macro. The screw is tight.

I hadn't read or heard anything publicly that lead me to believe that this was a widespread issue but hey after the 5600k problem...

I wonder if there are others who have this issue?

I'll say this though the lcd and the viewfinder are NOT to be used for critical focus or color.

I have a Panasonic 17"lcd and a Marshal component 7" lcd I use for focus and color and exposure. I just used for the first time this last weekend the Panasonic 8" lcd with the focus pixel in red feature. It is AMAZINGLY helpful! I wish Panasonic had given the HPX500 the feature internally. But I guess we may not buy as many monitors then...

If anyone is considering a monitor for this camera, GET ONE WITH THIS FEATURE and just consider it the actual professionally equipped price of the camera.
