Did you eat it cold or warm? When i had it it was cold. We stopped in China Town (nyc) for some cheap lunch and got the jellyfish as a side dish. It was 'ok' imo, i'd like to have it warmed and breaded, that may be tasty.

Had it cold too and also had it in (nyc) chinatown. It was an interesting meal. Never thought jellyfish could be made into food.

It's hard to tell on a shot like this.. but I think I see what you are talking about because this is the kind of shot that made me start setting up focus charts, find it was 6-10cm off and ultimately return it.

In all my shots, I would [Spot] focus on the face.. and while the face wasnt THAT soft, I would notice the fabric on the shoulder was razor sharp. Always. And the focal point would just leave me alittle less than happy. Still aesthetically pleasing, but not where I wanted the sharpest focus. Anyway, I can see the fabric on her arm is razor sharp and I assume you focused alittle futher back. So.... yeah. :( exactly like the one i had.

yet, still awesome shots.

I am using the lens primarly for mountain bike action with AI focus , 8 fps on a 7D.

Maybe your lens front/back focus. Have you done some tests ?

If it's accurate you should not use AI focus anyway. Use AI servo.

Or maybe it's just the lens beeing too slow for fast action shot...

My typo, I was using AI servo.

I did like the colour from the lens, but there was simply too many soft/ slightly out of focus shots.

I had my doubts when I first tried the lens on portraits of my daughter - but I hoped it would perform ok.

Had the lens on a 10 day approval, sent it back today.

It'll be the Canon 28mm f1.8 or Canon 35mm f2 for me now.

I prefer the 30mm IQ, but the 28/1.8 AF is AWESOME....It will match your 85/1.8....They are very similar lenses....Same family..

took the plunge and bought a Canon 28mm f1.8 online tonight - all the reviews comment about the fast autofocus, and thats my main concern really.
