Canon 5d mark II Soft Images !
Feb 19, 2012

Dear all,

I'm a professional wedding and modeling photographer. I recently switched to 5D mk II of Canon and used it with 70-200 f/2.8 L IS and 24-105 f/4 L IS.
Here what bothers me!

In even many outdoor locations with bright daylight, apreture even close to 6.3 and shutter speeds of at least 1/100 with IS on and low ISO ... (everything good for sharp images), many shots were captured pure soft (when viewed at 1:1 scale i.e. 100%). No part is in sharp focus!!

I check both JPEG (noise reduction set at low) and raw. Both are soft!

This may be of no problem in normal print sizes but for wedding photos which may be ordered on very large (say 100x70 cm) this could cause serious trouble!

I know many serious and professional folks out there have been dealing with such problem, but here I AM SEEKING SOLUTIONS! maybe I shall go with IS off! or what!

Please share your valuable experience!

Many thanks
Payam Ghafoori
