Read the long doc on getting the best images from Canon D-SLR cameras... it's on, written by Canon's Chuck Westfall.

You can determine whether camera or lens by changing combinations. Could be operating procedure, too. The doc outlines a strategy.

Canon is really good about standing behind their gear. If the lens is suspect (after going throught their test methods), return it to the Canon service center (either Jamesburg NJ or Irvine CA) with an explanation and samples (if you can). They have ways of determining what's up and can repair or even replace the item if needed.

They do make great equipment, but occassionaly service is required. I believe that Canon introduced some new circuit board last year to address focus/sharpness for that lens (and perhaps a couple of other L zooms). I'll bet that you will really like results from the service visit.

Good luck.

I have heard of this before but know nothing about it. Can you
explain what the proceedure is for getting the lenses checked? I
have a 70-200 f/2.8 L IS that is questionable but I am not sure if
it is the lens or my camera.

You might have Canon inspect the 24-70 and 16-35 lenses for focus
accuracy. I have heard of certain lenses that were in need of
service coming back tack sharp.
