Re: ** AF issue with 70-200 F2.8 IS please help! **

I'm not happy with the sharpness and focus accuracy at all!
This lens gives me even worse results as my (now sold) Sigma 100-300 F4.

I really wanted the F2.8 for supposed increased AF accuracy, bokeh en speed. The only thing I do like is the bokeh (it's silky smooth). But that's not enough.

I sent mine in for calibration and noted no improvement. My old
70-200 F4L non IS was sharper than this lens. I bought is because of
the IS and the F4L IS was not out yet. You will never be really
happy with the sharpness if you feel about it this way now. It is a
nice lens, but not as sharp as some other lenses. Return it and get
the F4L IS if you can live with F4.
