What happens when using a wide angle lens in liveview and manual focus? If it is something in the camera the same problem should be present to the same degree.

When it occurs it is present on any lens I have attached. It's hard to say if it's the same degree since the intensity of the jitter varies and sometimes goes away completely. Today the problem disappeared and I took some fantastically sharp photos hand holding the 400mm 5.6L. I love what it can do when it's working properly. One of the things I tried was re-installing the latest firmware even though I bought it with the latest (2.0.3) installed. I may be speaking too soon, but it seems to happen less frequently and less intensity since that. I'll wait and see. I hope it either leaves completely or does it continually so I can get it fixed. I'm afraid to send it to Canon in the condition it is. I'll probably get it back the same way.
