I was wondering what could be happening. Glad I haven't updated to 1.8.1 then!I’ll leave my post above, but I take back the things I said about AF and sharpness. If anyone remembers how some of us needed to down- and upgrade firmware because AF suddenly stopped working properly. This happened again, upgraded to 1.8.1 before I got the 135, and today I downgraded to 1.7.0 and it’s a completely different lens. Nails every shot and is substantially sharper. It’s better at tracking by far, but still needs more testing outdoors to conclude.
Oh no that's friggin terrible. Mine finally showed up 2 weeks ago but I've been traveling. I actually haven't had a chance to shoot with it yet. Hopefully they work that out for you quickly.Good news / bad news. B&H finally shipped it after 6 months, it made it all the way to Atlanta, and FedEx lost it. It was checked into the FedEx facility here, and never loaded on a truck for delivery...
Glad it worked out!
Awesome! And great shot! I might get out for a portrait shoot this weekend. Samples will follow if I do.
