Hi guys, I need ur suggestions here;
I got a new 5dmarkiii but when I test it with "focal" software and the canon 50mm 1.4 is front focus, I tried 2 new canon 50mm 1.4, one need dial about +10(varies slightly with distance) or so the other need dial about +15; I also tried 2 new sigma 50mm 1.4 one need dail >+20 which is out of AFMA range and the other need dail +17; (all tested in good light condition with steady tripod at f1.4 in the distance of 1.5-2.4 meters)
It seems to me it's the camera body need calibrate, so I sent it to FIXATION in London vauxhall and their report says:" reset functions all appear ok fault may be with lens"--- all 4 new lens shows all need at least >+10 AFMA? Does that sounds normal? I felt that FIXATION didn't check the focus issue of the body properly, what do they mean by saying: "reset function?" I don't need u to reset it as I knew there is a button in the menu that I can reset all to factory settings ,and When i got the camera back from them, all my custom settings with the camera is still there!!! What exactly did they reset/do? I also don't believe that all the 4 new lens are all front focusing, does it sounds FIXATION did a dodgy job(or actually did nothing?)---please correct me if I'm wrong
Today I sent one canon 50 1.4 one sigma 50 1.4 for them to calibrate since they suggest it's lens fault--- I don't want to sent both the body and lens as I don't want they calibrate the body to suite the lens as I will buy quite a few other lens and I just want get a perfect body and adjust lens accordingly; will interestingly to see what they say when they check the lens, i attached the original body report to them as well;
I got the feeling that the guys at FIXATION may not able to fix my problem, will us guys suggest me sent to canon RCC when I got my lens back?
Many thx in advance!
