So I ended up selling my 5d mkIII to buy a mkIV. Unfortunantly, I've been having focusing nightmares with it. Now that I'm editing photos, I'm noticing how terrible the focus is compared to my mkiii...

Anyone else having this issue ?

Thanks in advance!

Regardless of anyone else having issues, I'd exchange it.

We have three no issues. Even dark reception problem lenses (4 zooms) snap to action.

You have a bad one.

Mine is perfect - way better than the iii.

What situations are problematic? Have you micro adjusted the lenses, or are they significantly out?

I thought I was going crazy (still very possible), but I've experienced this as well. After receiving the body back from CPS it was perhaps better, but I still don't trust it. It's currently at CPS once again.

In my case it was with all Canon lenses. 35L II, 24-70 II, 70-200 II etc.

Yeah, return it or send in to Canon since the 5d4 is stellar at focusing

edit: saw your lenses. i shoot with the 50L wide open all the time, no problems.

Called today to check on my 5D4... they said it's "waiting for parts". I'm excited at the possibility of actually trusting this camera!

Looks like it won't make it home in time for my wedding this Saturday, so they are sending me a loaner. It will be nice to try out another 5D4 body to hopefully gain some confidence.

Got a call from Canon today, apparently they are still waiting for parts. I asked what part they were replacing... Mirror box assembly. Hmmm.

The loaner seemed to perform VERY well yesterday at our wedding. Excited to have mine back tomorrow.

My 7DII is up to shit. NOTHING is in focus. Don't know what it's doing thought it was my bad eyesight till I got new glasses and then saw how bad it is.

Filled out an online service form for the thing a couple of weeks back and haven't heard back.

Going to be lighting a fire under them tomorrow.
6D I got at the same time is tack sharp with the same lenses as is the original 7D so I know where the problem is.
