No AF microadjust on the 60D, am I the only one who thinks this is insane?

BTW I find it curious that you have a bag of primes that needed no AF MA on your 50D. I could begin to understand this if they are shorter FL primes (200mm and under) but not longer lenses. I have a combination of 6 primes and zooms with FL below 105mm and none require AF MA on either my 50D or 7D but all 5 of my lenses of 200mm and greater require some adjustment to be tack sharp wide open at 50x FL. How are you doing the test for MA?

MA helps to adjust bodies as well, not only lenses. I went throught two 50D bodies. The first one visibly front focued with all lenses, and MA was able to fix that. The second one that I kept was better but still needed small adjustments with my lenses, all below 200 mm.

I had a front focusing 350D that was a RPITA to fix (2 trips to Canon, hex key, etc.). Never a body without MA for me again.
