Since its under warranty, and, presumably out of spec, they should not charge you.  It must be on your listing of equipment for CPS to qualify, so make sure its registered first.

You could send both the lens and the camera, if they tweak both to spec, then things should look pretty good.

Thanks again, that's a good point, "presumably" out of spec! With my Canon 400D and the 50mm 1.8 II I took razor-sharp photos, now with my 60D they are sharp but not as sharp as with my 400D. I wonder if it's only 'cause of the 10 to 18 Mpx upgrade, or both, that the 60D out of spec is not matching as good with the out of spec of the 50mm lens, not as good as with the 400D.

And yes, I'll register them on the CPS homepage, but unfortunately the 50mm 1.8 II does not qualify for CPS, and it got no more warranty, in contrary to the 15mm, which too got no more warranty, but it's a "CPS lens", I am already curious how much the calibration will cost..

Last but not least, how is this calibration done? How can they calibrate a lens? I am eager to know the technical facts behind it, maybe you know Mr. Mt. Spokane?

Canon will calibrate your camera to its proper specs, and your lenses to their proper specs. 

If your 60 D is off with all your lenses, get it calibrated first.  I refuse to buy one, because of the lack of Micro Adjust.

Thanks Spokane, what you said makes sens  8). I may call Canon to ask for the price for a 60D Body Calibration..
Actually the 60D qualifies for CPS, and it's still under warranty, so I may get it for free?

When I bought the 60D I knew the MA would be the only thing I would miss with this camera for now, but I compensate the last surplus of MA sharpness with my artistic talent...or at least I try to  ::)

Hm, calibrating in Canon services has cost smth about 30€. Well, you won't afford any Canon lens for these money, but at least 1 correctly working lens is quite OK result :)

What if I own a Canon 60D. a 50mm 1.8 II, a 28mm 1.8 and a 15mm 2.8? Can I send them in and they'll be calibrated all together? And what would I have to pay for this? Excuse my question but I am new to this. Thanks.
