| p.1 #1 · Canon 35mm 1.4 problem, need advice |
Ive got a 5d2 and 35mm 1.4 and I just got both of them back from CPS service. I was getting soft/out of focus shots so I sent it in.
They said "It was found that the adjustment of the circuit board was inforrect and ectrical adjustments were made" on the 5d2
On the lens: They said the whole autofocus system was broken and replaced it all, plus some other stuff which I thought was crazy. I dont know how this could have been as its a fairly new lens (UZ date code) and there was barely a scratch on the body of the lens, if one at all. Thing is, the autofocus would lock on every time, nothing was in focus though. Anyway, they didnt charge me for it so im grateful they covered the repair.
But it still acts the same. It seems to focus correctly at apertures above f2. But there is a major difference between 1.4 and f2 in the sharpness. At 1.4 its just not sharp.
I did notice that when using a flash, the sharpness/focus seemed to be greatly improved.
Should I send it back in? If I do I want to better pinpoint what I need them to fix and im not sure I know what the problem is yet.
