I have owned probably 30 different L series lenses, mostly super-telephotos (including three different 100-400s) over the past three decades.  I never do any tests and I have never returned a lens.  For the past few years I have been micro-adjusting all of my long lenses with the LensAlign.  I have done OK over the years with my bird photographs.  I think that it might have been Micheal Reichmann who said, most lenses are sharper than most photographers. 

I just checked.  He said, "Most lenses are better than most photographers.   In either case, I agree whole-heartedly.

Try harder. More responses under your belt and you may see a "better" camera under your alias...

:-) It's the equivalent to other fantasy names on other boards and simply changes with the number of posts you've written ... the most senior members that obviously have nothing better to do than to write on CR have a 1DX besides their name :->
