Actually, I think it sounds just as suspicious if you've had to afma ALL your gear. Are you sure your camera is okay or that your lens supplier isn't supplying you with lemons? I don't think it's normal that you don't get a single perfect lens. A big reason for buying high end lenses, among others, is that they tend to be better calibrated in the factory and the tolerances for quality control are higher.
Despite my "ho hum" review of the 40mm it's kind of grown on me, it's a very capable lens and if you don't have a zoom in that focal range it's a no-brainer as a buy.
The "upgrade" for the C100/c300 included sending in the camera for calibration of the on-sensor PDAF. This is more than just a firmware upgrade. Canon is also charging $500 for this service.
Hi Benny, I appreciate this, I actually went ahead & ordered a weye feye unit from Amazon.Com for $165, seemed the cheapest option out there. I opted for the more expensive Weye Feye unit over the newer "S" unit as it seems the newer cheaper "S" unit doesn't support Live View, but does support more Cameras, at least with the Original unit the 5DMK III is supported, perhaps the 1Dx later with firmware.
Turns out my laptop which I thought might be slow is past it!
Hope her old laptop (better than mine but still not new) will manage to work. Not sure the long USB cable from upstairs will be that practical!
