you are forgiven
i was not satisfied with the AF consistency close and at wide apertures, means: principally for portraits. dont ask me for details, but the behaviour was like that: inconsistent. i tested and observed it enough. compared to the 30D and 50D the AF accuracy at the described conditions was not satisfying. not consistent. please note: i mentioned the 1D3. i sold the 35L before getting the 1D4.
BTW: I bought the 50L for the 35L and i am much more happy with it for closeup portraits ( < f2.5) on the 1D3 (and of course on the 1D4). cannot tell you if it could have been a callibration problem between 1D3 and 35L. i could have checked that out, but at that time i did not thought about it.
the AF of the 1D3 had been callibrated by routine when i still owned the 35. it didnt change anything: the AF was as good as before. - before and afterwards i had no problems with my lenses, nor for servo bursts, nor for critical wide open stuff, except the 35L (and at a certain degree with my 200L f2.8 wide open).
You sold the 35 because of focus issues? Why not get it fixed?
Forgive me, but I find it hard to believe that the (at the time) top dog in af speed is bested by xxd cameras, unless you had an issue with the 1d3.
