^It seems to be an issue with certain bodies. On my 1Ds III the performance at 1.4 is very good.

^ I saw that Julian. Its not great on my 7d or 5d2. seems a little better on 5d2 surprisingly. when the focus is accurate, its very sharp. but some times it misses by a fair bit. even if I am shooting same subject, on repeat autofocus, it may change its mind on where the focus point is. Here is a thread I started on FM.

From what I read in that post, it looks like the best option is to send the lens and body in for calibration.

My first copy of this lens was terribly inconsistent in focusing, missing focus repeatably 6-7 out of 10 times in test after test. In researching this lens and looking at the feedback at Canon USA, Adoroma and B&H I found this seemed to be a fairly common occurance. I returned the lens and had them send another one. The second copy is spot on but does require a little ma on the 5DmII.
