Who doesn't like to hear about the MDP every now and then? I have had mine for several years now and there are a few quirks with the lens and I am looking for similar experiences from others.
Quirk One: Parts of the barrel seem loose, in that there seems to be some free play between the sections, both in a twisting motion and pulling.
Quirk Two: Every now and then, it will seem that I have focused on something, a flower for example, there is not a focus confirmation from the camera and a picture can not be taken. I am not too close, it would seem to be contrasty enough and it looks in focus, but no response. If I stop and focus on something else, all is great. But back to the flower, nothing. One shot AF used, Aperture Priority, if that helps.
I have had this experience on a 1n, T1i and now my 7d.
Also is does go frantic trying to get focus sometimes, but I have heard that is common.
Thanks for the help. Me Gusta the lens a lot, but also at time wish for a little faster/better AF, but really, how many zooms should one person have?
