Re: That loCA is normal.

Agree with the comments from brightcolours. I'd turn of the focus adjustment and try another target. You do know the focus adjustment is really only accurate for the distance the target is at when you set it? My experience is people spend too much time with this when it's better to just use it without unless you can determine an actual problem.

My 85 1.8G is very sharp. Not as sharp at 1.8 as f4, but what do you expect?
