It’s been my experience that focus problems are usually solved by putting the camcorder in manual focus, zooming totally into the subject, using the auto-focus button or focus controls to get a razor sharp focus then zooming out to the desired framing. Both the eyepiece & the LCD are notorious for looking great when the focus isn’t actually right.
Since both camcorders are three chip models, they should be very close in resolution. So if the zoom-in focus method doesn’t work, you may have your back focus incorrectly adjusted. But give the zoom-in method a shot & let us know what happens.
