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?
