You could be right, or maybe I got a bad copy.

It's pretty hard to EFF up 1/2000 of a second. And why is it clear at other aperatures?


Ken, my 50mm f/1.4G couldn't focus at infinity a couple times when new, but using the lens resolved the issue. Never had that weird problem again.

Use your lens a little. Tweak the AF Fine Tune in your camera. Put the camera on a tripod, take a picture of a static item. See if the subject is in focus and if so if it's sharp. If it's not then maybe you do have a bad lens.
