try importing the images using EOS utility from canon...see if that helps.

wrong...Canon seems to give much smoother "bokeh" after the drop... that was intentionally hidden feature meant for t6i that popped out after the drop.

Canon FTW ! ;)

Canon-convert, thanks for your reply. Are you using windows 7 or 8 or Mac?  I'm using Windows XP which doesn't support LR4. I may just have to upgrade to at least windows 7 and then get LR4, too.  $$  :-\

Mac :)

but that might not be the issue... wait for others to respond back before doing any upgrades

I faced similar issue few days back. I didn't notice any naming changes but, those files downloaded fine (to computer) using the EOS utility and later I was even able to import them in LR. I was getting error only when importing directly from CF card to LR.
I am not sure what caused the problem in first place but I was able to save my photos.

I use LR4 btw.

Hi canon_convert,
I'm not 100% sure on refurbs item. My guess is you should be fine since your lens is till under their warranty.

Just tell them what you just told me - "you bought this lens through their site and it seems to be soft on your 5D III"

In my case, I brought my 5D II + 24-105 down to service center in Irvine, CA. I told them the lens is soft and asked if they can help. They did calibrated the lens to match with my 5D II.

The lens did get little better after calibration, but no where near my current 5D III  + 24-70 f2.8 II or 70-200 f2.8 IS II.

My 2cents: the 24-105L is not a sharp lens. I tried 2 copies, no luck.

Hey thanks for getting back to me... I'll know for sure about my 24-105 once I get my 70-200 II later this week...Managed to score one from Canon refurb sale :)

If your lens or camera still under Canon 1yr warranty, then send both body and lens to Canon. Canon will do it for FREE. Canon will ask for the original sale receipt from authorized dealer - no exception. Without receipt, they will charge about $200 US for this service.

They calibrated my 5D II + 24-105 for FREE, since my 5D II was under warranty at that time.

Hi Dylan,

Would this work on refurbs purchased through Canon stores ... I did buy a 24-105L roughly one month back but, I find the focus to be bit off (on 5D3). Images come out pretty soft even under ideal lighting conditions (tried tripod/live view etc.). Tried focal that reported a +3 on Wide end but still not much improvement.

Typically canon offers 90 day warranty on refurbs. I did register for CPS so how do I initiate this request to Canon .. Sorry for the n00b questions.

thank you

If you can afford $1,600, I'd get a refurbished 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM. While it won't stop action as well as the 135mm f/2 lens except at 190-200mm, it's much more versatile and almost as sharp. Also consider the 100-400mm ($1,087) and the 300mm f/4L ($927) lenses, if reach and/or price is more important to you than aperture.

The next step up from these lenses is the 200mm f/2L lens ($6,000).

It's 1750 after taxes unless you are assuming that he doesn't have to pay tax. 100L would be the way to go considering his budget
