Happy to put it in your capable hands Lady Jo! I can put the sharp/soft argument to rest, at least as it relates to my copy........................ (BTW, this is a Red Shouldered Hawk)

Beautiful captures Jim .. the second a person even slows down in their vehicle out here, these guys are on the wing !

I wish Nikon had a reasonable lens like Canon's 100-400 ......

I sent my 70-200 mm in yesterday to Melville .. today they said $600 and another 48.50 for shippin' and tax. It never ends It's insured, but I forgot to send them my ups ticket for $10 bucks shippin' from here .. guess I could eat that

When insurance claims dept called me, she was gonna just go ahead and replace it .. mmmmm don't think you can buy a version 1 anymore - would of been a pretty good deal for me and since I have the inflation clause she'd of probably done it not knowing any better .. she's like it says here it is a 70-200 mm UR .. u r .. no, VR ma'am .... o, I'll change that .. lol -- told her I had sent it in for repair and she was happy to hear it, but would research a new replacement in case it couldn't be fixed so there would be no delay in processing my claim !! WOW !!

Good luck Curtis. I was thinking exactly the same thing re: Nikon this evening. I'm tempted to buy the 200-400, because I know with reasonable certainty that they are going to best Canon again body wise and I'll be moving deeper and deeper into Nikon country over the next few years.

12:04 Dallas time and I could keep Photoshopping til dawn. I really have about two solid weeks of post work, but my shooting schedule won't allow that luxury. Just took on four more commercial projects spread across the country and I have fifteen on the schedule as it stands, no complaints, just a little fried. JR just dropped by to ask me if I could go with him to the Congo on a business deal in the near future..............I think that is just the other side of The Big Bend, isn't it?

Time for a serious bout of sensor cleaning before I shoot another thing that isn't at 2.8! All of a sudden my sensors all look like I've been changing lenses in a sandstorm. Guess I'll devote the morning to that project.

JW - nice bird images. Guess you could say you shot a BIRDIE on the course today . The 100-400 i purchased new , was extremely sharp, until the IS went whacko . Then after return from Canon repair it seemed sofd. I think part of my problem was my 10D body .

If Nikon were to announce a 17T/S equivalent and a new pro body, I think I'd sell all my Canon gear and never look back.

ran this on one of our old work boxes - I think I overloaded the end point where the test ran, because this is well below our actual bandwidth

I thought I left the space nuts behind when I left Clear Lake and the Johnson Space Center when I retired. But gosh, SpaceEx has a rocket engine test facility 15 miles north of the farm, and now I learn the US rocket team at the Paris Air Show is from Georgetown, TX, about 30 minutes south of the farm.

Young American Rocketeers
On Friday, American, British and French student rocketeers will compete in the annual international rocketry global championship.
The Georgetown 4-H team from Georgetown, Tex., bested 99 teams in the recent U.S. finals for the chance to represent the United States at the Paris Air Show.

Jim,

I borrowed a 100-400 from a friend for my recent vacation out west and dang your's is so much sharper. Beautiful hawk and golf photos. I tried MA, tripods, etc and must say inconsistent were the results. Some photos very sharp and clear, others not. Copy variation I guess. Only thing that was repeatable is the closer the subject the more likely the focus was correct. Seemed to back focus, but tried the MA with tripod on two separate days and got values of 2 and 10 respectively. I think he is going to send it in for a check out as it's only 4 months old.

But I love the focal range, IS, etc. I think it's a great lens to have if it's working well.

Just my 2 cents,
Dan

PS - Looks like I have to add a top photo.

Maybe I am being dumb, but how exactly do you send a lens in for a clean and check and calibration only? I looked on the Canon site the other day and it has check boxes for various kinds of broken-ness but nothing for 'just sort it out'...

I'm curious how many folks here have their lenses calibrated to thier cameras ? Do it yourself .. ? OEM ?? 3rd party ?

I once had my 17-55mm calibrated by Nikon to a D300 I no longer have, and quite frankly the results were amazing !

Nikon has the same type of repair form ........ but I always enclose a letter stating what I think is wrong and what I want ... they then send an email saying what they found on their eval with the cost ........ and what was in the box ....... rear lens cap, front lens cap, your letter, 70-200mm xxxxxxxx

I'm sure if you send a letter along you'd get the same result ..

Last time I sent this 70-200mm in for a clean and cal it was like 350 bucks !!

I told them in the letter I sent in this time I felt i hadn't rec'd a good cleaning the last time it was in .. since they're going to have to really disassemble this lens - cleaning should be a given as they reassemble the lens.

Jo, when I was a CPS member, I called CPS to tell them I wanted to do a clean and check (I had a free coupon), but I also wanted them to calibrate the 24-70. He told me a clean and check is included in lens calibration. So I asked for a calibration price and he finally told me to put the coupon in the box, and they would do the calibration using the coupon with no additional charges. I simply wrote "calibration with clean and check" on the CPS work request form. Everything worked out fine.

Generally, Canon will have bodies that they consider to be "golden samples" where they know every attribute is spot on and they'll use those bodies to calibrate lenses to where they meet spec (as it relates to that golden sample body.)

If you truly want YOUR glass to work perfectly with YOUR body, then you really should send both. HOWEVER, if you have more than one body, that's not necessarily going to work very well.

For the record, everything I've ever posted here has come from a mix of three bodies and nine lenses and none of them have ever been to Canon nor have I ever done any micro-focus adjustments to anything. I do need to send my 24-70 to Canon for some TLC because it got dropped, but so far, it's still working well insofar as I can tell. There is cosmetic rash and the front ring is slightly out of round, but otherwise it still makes good images.
