Returned the 17mm TSE. The lens was excellent but I couldn't justify the price tag for what I shoot ... maybe later.

The 85mm f/1.2L is next on my shopping list  :D

Don't get me wrong, I like the 135L sharpness and AF speed. However, there is something about 85L II - sharpness and bokeh. I ended up return my 135L  and settle with 85L II.

To me, 70-200 f2.8 IS II seems to be a better choice over 135L - except the weight.

I'm practically married to my 135L, the bokeh with telephoto compression is excellent IMHO. I don't think I'll be getting the 70-200 once I get the 85L. I'll wait for a new 200mm f/2.8 L IS prime even if the wait is long.   :D

Try a different card

I'm shooting with 32GB Lexar Pro 1000x CF. I do have another card at home, I can give it a try at lunch today.

Do you think I have a bad Lexar CF???

It's not the camera.
I had a similar thing happen with that Lexar card and a bad CF card reader on my PC.
Use Sandisc recovery tool to get the images back, and then reformat the card in the camera.

Any image file corruption is always going to be down to an error during data transfer. I had a load of RAW files corrupted in the same way when moving data to a new RAID array via a cheap RAID controller.
