Hi Leon

Yeah – I understand that Tony Northrup tends to use these lenses in “real world” situations and that differences only begin to emerge when pixel peeping, or making heavy crops.

I once had a Canon 300mm F4 L that I was very disappointed with, even tripod mounted, so I retuned it under warranty and it was found to be front focusing (my Canon 40D does not have Micro Focus Adjust) and when replaced, all was well.

The impression I am getting is that provided you have good copies of the lens, it is often poor technique that produces a soft image rather than the lens itself?

Cheers

Dennis
