Re: My 85mm f1.8G lens

Ok here is a sample photo I just clicked off straight OOC and resized. The focus point is on the bridge of his nose. Shot with mirror up.

Note how there is NO SHARP focus point anywhere in the frame to show that the lens is back for front focused. I can only dream about the sort of focus that the previous baby photo shows at 100% crop.

Pretty sure this is a dud lens.
