That would be hugely annoying! I would call it a bug!

Not working today, although lots of homework to do. But, Adorama had delivery of my Sigma 50 1.4 Art as being today through UPS. So, I went to the office, opened all the doors, turned on the lights, so clearly we could received inside delivery. So, it's 4 PM, still no delivery, so I check UPS tracking again. "Delivered 12:30 PM outside". Sure enough, the bastard had dropped it 3+ feet into our outdoor box (onto the hard concrete/steel floor) for when we're not at the office. Lazy bastard. Merry Christmas to you, too. If started to drop one of my cherished lens over three feet onto concrete (in boxing or not), it'd risk injury to dive onto the ground under it. I understand it was in a decent lens case. But the sudden deceleration can be good for it. Goll-dang it!I know it wasn't how you wanted the delivery to go but it sounds like the driver followed established practices. Where you honestly easy to see or find inside the office? Was the parking lot empty enough for a reasonable person to conclude the office was closed. Sometimes a moment of planning can save hours of worry. I bet a simple call to the 800 number or communication to anyone at UPS to alert them that "although the office is closed, I will be there to get an important package" would have changed the out come.
http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Sony-A7S-versus-Canon-EOS-5D-Mark-III-versus-Nikon-D800E___949_795_814I am waiting see real world pictures, dxo rates the d800 at approximately 2900 which any one who has seen the files knows its not that good at high ISO. I think the a7s will be amazing 12800 or slightly higher
DxO give it a low light score of 3702, which bests the 1DX (2786) and 6D (2340). Not unsurprising given the much lower MP of the sensor.
Is the A7s now the king of low light photography?
I have the same problem with the 5D mk II & 50/f1.4. I bought Focal or lenscal awhile back and tried to do the AFMA adjustment with my computer. one surprising thing is how hard it is to get enough of the correct lighting in your living room. The result wasn't much better. ive even just gone outside and adjusted it manually in camera and taken shots to see which appears the most in focus. Even that really didn't solve the focus problem. but now it is better than the back focusing I had when I put the center dot on the subject. One solution is to buy the 50 art lens. but I liked having something more compact and small. the other solution would be to send it to canon PS. but I think it just needs a new homeOn my 5d mark II it's the same, the center point is golden, the rest not so much
