Dustin, I haven't tried it with this lens, but in terms of focusing, I've always used LiveView at full magnification and manually focused on a bright star in the frame.  That's how I've gotten around the Canon infinity focus issue.

I mapped out the position of infinity focus on both 16-35 lenses today.  It actually falls right short of of the bar that then becomes a straight line moving towards the infinity symbol - well short of the hard stop.

That sounds right to me - even in relatively warm (75F) temperatures it seems to fall right around that mark on most of my Canon lenses.  The hard stop is always well past infinity and it makes you wonder how extreme the temperatures need to be to get it to that point!
