Thanks, I did
Only just received the lenses, a couple of weeks after the body. Lots to learn yet!
I spent an hour or so in semi-manual mode playing with it on the 100 2.8L before the battery died; by my eye and the Q results, it seemed best at +5. While the battery recharged, I re-read the manual now that I had some concrete concepts to attach to the text of the manual. It made a lot more sense after!
I went back and did the 100 L, the 24-105L and the 70-300L in about half an hour in Full Auto/MSC mode (it's a 5D Mark III). All seemed to work fine, but FoCal ended up with a different result on the 100. "10" instead of "5"... however the data points were pretty much flat at Q1500 from 4 to 15 on the "auto" calibration. I'll go back later and really "dial" it in, manually, before doing a "sharpest aperture" run.
MANY thanks for making this offer available. It's a good program. Takes a bit of getting used to, but in reality it isn't nearly as "finicky" as the manual suggests. I didn't have to adjust the target once - just point the camera correctly at it
FoCal has "dialed in" some pretty damned sharp AF for me in less time than it took to erect the testing equipment (and gazebo for the sun!) and break it down again. I'm impressed, and I think the discounted price makes it even better value.
Apologies for Thread Necromancy, but this one (if any) deserves to live!
