Canon 70-200 2.8L IS SOFTNESS issues
Nov 6, 2006

Hi everybody.

I bought a Canon 70-200 2.8L IS and i think i have a major problem about this lens. I just want to know your opinion about this before doing something.

I was doing a focus test using " http://www.focustestchart.com " chart and i noticed the left side softer than the right side and gets worse as it opens to 2.8. I also noticed that focus on the right side is excelent but i cannot tell the same thing on the left side. I just gets blured.

My heart died that moment. This was my new baby

I would like to have SOME feedback from you about this. I took some shots to show you.
