Sorry if this has been asked before, but LR hasn't got the lens correction yet right? So do you guys use an alternate lens (i've been using the Sigmalux) or just use none?

Reason is the vignette is quite severe wide open...

Day 3 with the lens and I have to say the AF is erratic....fine @ close distance and front focus crazy at times....:(

The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DG profile works really well for me ;)

got this lens for a few weeks now, took it out for some test shots today, so far i am loving it, here are two shots at 1.4

Is that Boston Chinatown? Looks to be where I used to live. The 1.4 really blurs it so it really could be anywhere.

i'm using the Sigma 30mm profile as it is the closest FL. it works great.

I got the lens a couple of days ago and have had quite bad results with AF. I think it's my camera though. I have the 550D and my boyfriend has the 600D. I just put the lens on his camera and have no problems with focus at all. Does this mean I should send my camera in for repair? Are there shops that do this within a day? I start working on a cruiseship next week and will be gone for 3 whole months. I've never really noticed autofocus problems up until now, but than again, I never shot at f1.4. All my shots are focussed at least 1cm or more in front of the object. The 600D of my partner has no such problems.
At the moment this lens feels useless because of this problem.

Too close? What does that mean? That it's not worth fixing? All the close up shots (and I use it a lot for that) are OOF. Depending on the angle, there is a difference in missed focus between 1cm and up to 3-4 cm. I think that makes it pretty unusable?

Minimum Focus Distance 11.81" (30.00 cm)

He means it's focusing behind the target by 1cm.

Oops, I guess I wasn't very clear.
My focusing distance was about 50 cm, I meant I had a front focusing problem of about 1-2 cm. The area in front of where I focused on was sharper than the focused area. If I shoot two flowers that are a couple of cm apart, and I focus on the back one, the front one is in focus. Quite a big difference I think!

Oh I see..yeah then it could be the lens or the body however if you had a body that had MA that could be fixed easily. :(
