| p.1 #1 · Does MA apply to Live view? |
Reason I ask is this.
I received my replacement 24 1.4II after the first one was poorly focusing. LAst evening I was enjoying a few cervasas and taking pictures of the bottle with the lens. It appeared to be very good on my three bodies.
Today I was trying to use the lens to take photos at breakfast of my son, and consistently they were front focused.
So I got out the tripod and set up the lens box. I shot three frames defocusing to infinity each time. Then I would shoot three frames with Live view. Then I would dial in 5 clicks of micro adjustment.
The live view frames look almost identical, with the non-live view frames varying wildly.
I cannot seem to find any information in my 7D or 1DIV's manual.
I've had a few hits with the lens, and at 1.4 it's very, very sharp.
It's just I've got to find out is it my crappy technique, is it MA that needs dialed in. I'm going to do the 50x focal length set up when I get a chance (any of you with kids know exactly how difficult it is to get anything accomplished, and anyone that's tried to test out their lenses knows exactly how painful MA is).
