Hey guys, so I just got my "brick", is there any test I can do to
test sharpness and focus, just want to figure out if my copy is good.
Also the date code is UV0719

just go shoot. If you do test then your already thinking something is going to be wrong. Just use in real life out side.

what everyone else said..... Then take a look at your pictures and check for sharpness and focus issues.

Damn, I thought this thread was about a NEW 24-70 (hopefully with I.S.) that Canon released today.

It's probably out of calibration. Might as well send it to me.

It's actually not that silly of a question. I dont own one, bit the Spyder LensCal has been reviewed as a handy tool.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about it. If you assume something is wrong with your lens and your actively searching for a problem, it's only going to make you paranoid and in the end, drive you crazy. If something isn't right, it will show up in your images.

that sounds fair enough, i'll be taking test shots this weekend.
but in all honesty, how would one one if it's front/back focusing?

And also is my date code of this lens the latest?

I was under the impression that they stopped putting date codes on lenses..I can't find one on my 24-70 that I bought in march/april.

should I put the Hoya pro1 digital protector filter on this lens?
would it make a difference in image quality or colors if it was on?
