I rented a 35L f1.4 and a 5dmkIII for an event tonight. I love the camera but I am having a problem with the 35. All my other lenses focus perfectly on this body (I love the 135L results), but from f1.4 to almost f3.2 this lens seems soft at best. I took it outside to test shoot and all of the shots of my kids or just objects with this lens are just awful wide open. I tried to Micro Adjust the lens with my limited capablities (Tripod, book, mirror lock up, remote, test shots from -20 to +20 in increments of 5) and none of the text looked sharp. I picked the best one and still the lens is awful. Am I missing something? Is there something else I can do? Do I have a dud lens? I really wanted to use this lens but I just don't trust it. Is there anyone out there that can help me trouble shoot this problem? I guess the good news is that I have my trusty 35mm f2 to use as a back up if need be.... Its weird because all of my other lenses functioned properly as soon as I slapped them on the camera, no MA needed. Just this one.....
