I purchased this lens on the weekend, upgrading from 100mm non L model. Very impressed with the sharpness but have some questions over the auto focusing on distance shooting.
Three settings are avail those being:
FULL .3m to infinity
.3 to .5
.5 to infinity
Now I have no issues with focusing using the macro end, however when trying to focus on distance the lens does not try to focus until I start to manual focus and then it will focus automatically. I set the focus to FULL in this instance.
Was wondering if any one has this experience. I have reported it to TEDS and they are willing to exchange the lens (once a new one arrives) but if this is part of it's normal behaviour it could save me a trip.
