I would want it fixed too. But curious why you had to send the camera and 70-200 f/2.8L II in for calibration? Didn't the AF microadjust work? I would be more upset over that.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your reply. I am an amateur hobbyist and I have never done AFMA. I think I might make the AF worse if I tried. ;D
 
I was thinking of buying Reikan FoCal, but from reading CF threads, it seems rather demanding and I don't have a lot of lens.

So, since it was free from the Canon Service Center here in Honolulu under warranty, (including free postage), I sent my 2 week old 5D3 in with my 10 month old 24-70Lii and 70-200Lii lenses for calibration.  I did the same with my 7D and 100-400L several years ago, and they came back sharper. I knew from other posts, that there is always a small chance that they could make things worse. :)
