Lenses / 85L mkii soft at longer distances?
« on: January 03, 2014, 08:04:32 PM »
I recently bought a new 85L. I'm using a 5Dmkiii and I did microadjustments at 50x via Focal and FocusTune (both resulted in a -1 adjustment). Headshots and chest up shots are razor sharp. Problem is, if I pull back to do a full body shot the image is soft.

I dropped the lens off at Canon to have it checked (service center is only 30 mins from me). They said "the adjustment of the circuit board was incorrect causing the focus to operate improperly. Electrical adjustments were carried out on the circuit board."

Problem is, I'm still having the same issue...razor sharp up close, soft at longer distances (full body shots)

Any ideas?

apparently FW 1.0.7 adds remote manual power control + triggering in conjunction with non-Canon cameras. This starts to get interesting for people wanting to use 600EX-RTs with Canon DSLRs as well as with other manufacturers mirrorless cameras ... but I don't know, whether Sony A7/R have what is considered a "standard iso hot shoe" and whether the YN-E3-RT would work or not.  8)

FWIW, I just tried using it on my Fuji X100S. It will fire the flashes just fine, but the buttons/wheel are basically inoperable while in the hotshoe. I have to slide it out of the hotshoe, make whatever changes I want to make then slide it back in.Very strange to say the least.

That being said, everything still remains to work perfectly on my 5Dmkiii after the update.
