Anybody else notice the complete lack of EXIF data on the images? Are they really from a 1D X. I haven't seen anything come out of my 1D X looking like that and I too own a 50/1.2L...
Yes they are indeed from a 1dx. For some reason the metadata is not transferring to flickr. Just so there's no questions about the authenticity I'm posting a couple of screenshots from lightroom 4.1 with the metadata.
I must admit I'm pretty shocked by this happening. The 50 f/1.2 is not producing this effect on my other bodies. It is a new lens, perhaps it is the combo of lens and body. I did know going into the purchase that the lens did have a reputation for strange and often annoying "behavior" but these happenings are a little bit more than I expected.
I suspect that the problem could be with a faulty anti-aliasing filter. I'm going to attempt to return the body to the local dealer I bought it from 15 days ago. Hopefully they'll take it.
I'm a little miffed with Canon's track record as of late. Seems the last few bodies I've bought have had problems out of the box. It's a real shame.
