  • I received my 5D IV back from canon today. Strangely the middle focus point is now worse than the outer focus points. With the middle focus point and the 50mm 1.4 I have a 60% hit rate. With the ...
  • It did sound a bit unbelievable, but I'm not sure what reason they would have to lie to me? My lens has been back and forth about 6 times for AF adjustments to no avail. My experience has been ...
  • I'm happy that it's working well for you, it really is a great lens. I was unfortunate to get two duds in a row after canon replaced my first lens. They didn't want to give me a third one as they ...
  • Impressive results! I wish my 5d mark iv was as reliable and accurate. To be fair I haven't properly tested the camera since canon cleaned out the autofocus sensor. Apparently there was some dust ...
  • In my experience so far, sending everything away to canon for calibration hasn't really improved the situation. Having said that, I'm not sure what other options you have? That's a lot of ...
  • That sounds even worse than my camera. Sorry to hear. Have you sent the body back to Canon? Still under warranty?
  • I thought it would be better to add to this thread instead of starting a new one. Sorry to hear you're experiencing a similar issue. Is it the middle AF point that's an issue for you or the outer ...
  • Replied in Autofocus issues
    Just to add to this thread. My 5d mark ii and 5d mark iii both had more reliable autofocus than my 5d mark iv. My 5d mark iv has been into canon multiple times for repairs for this very reason. On ...
  • I was considering the canon 35mm f2 IS, but maybe the Tamron is worth a look too. My concern would be the autofocus of the Tamron, but good to hear your experience has been positive. I wonder how ...
  • Interesting. Thanks for that. Canon said that with the outer non-cross type points the hit rate would only be 40%. Looks like you're getting better than that.
  • Also using a 5D4. How is the accuracy on the outer cross-type autofocus points for you? Also, has anyone here ever had to send their lens / camera body back to canon japan for repairs? I'm just not ...
  • I just received a phone call from Canon. Their calibration process has failed again. I suggested I would take the refund and repurchase the lens unless they were willing to give me a replacement. ...
  • I think I would be quite happy with an f2 lens, so this is definitely an option, thanks for the suggestion.
  • Thanks, I might give it one last go like you've suggested. There is obviously a quality control issue with this particular lens, such a shame.
  • Sorry to add to such an old thread, but thought I should share my experience with the 35mm 1.4L ii. I bought my first copy 2 years ago and it went back and forth to Canon about 6 times for an ...
