Lenses front focus issues
Sep 2, 2014

I've just got another copy of the Canon 50mm f/1.8 - much better but not yet perfect.

At 1.5m it's focussing about 1cm closer to the camera - lean forward a tiny bit and it solves the eye sharpness issue at f/1.8.

The last copy was 4-5cm in front or behind - all over the place and inconsistent.

Does anyone know if on a 650D, this is adjustable - either in lens or in camera?
