Re: Help with Spyder Lenscal

i don't see any noise but the focus is horrid!!! i would use a brick wall with camera on a tripod with a wired or wireless shutter remote control to check the focus. but the horrid focus also could have been caused by hand shake since you said you had turned off the IS. good luck and happy zooming

I have a 70-200mm f2.8 that I was using on an EOS80D and wasn't always getting tack sharp images. I've just treated myself to a 1DX MKii and bought a spyder lenscal to make sure the lens is calibrated properly.

I took the attached image with ISO100, IS switched off, 70mm.

First question - I think there's noise in the image even with an ISO of 100. Would you agree? Any tips?

Secondly, do you think a correction needs to be made to the AF? I can't really say whether the 0 or one of the other numbers is more in focus.
