Has anyone else been less than satisfied with their 50D image quality? When I first got mine I thought the images were good but not as sharp as they could be.

Interesting observation: you have a transient intrusion of softness that you currently hypothesize is related to focus.

I "think" I have seen this sometimes on my 50D, but, whenever this situation appears I am usually handholding an 85mm or greater focal length (I have no lenses with image stabilization), and, usually, increasing the shutter speed to 1/2(focal length) does the trick.

However, Sometimes, if I focus on trees, low contrast objects, I can see what appears to be transient focus issues.

In situations where I cannot return for focus, I use live view and a tripod.

This always, without fail, works.
