I have never (:cry:) put my hands on a beauty like this, but, as far as I know:

1 - even though this lens is a bit soft wide-open, it shouldn't be so soft like the photos you sent;
2 - this ^^^ doesn't mean this particular lens is soft. It could just be that this lens on your camera (and on the buyers) needs calibration. Have you ever took it to Canon to check it with your camera?
3 - it can also be that the lens is miss focusing in MFD but focusing right/better when the distance to subject it a bit more (like the girl photo).

I'd receive the lens, refund the guy and keep it :)

Forgot another thing: And learn how to use it.

From what I've read, this is not a "linear" lens, you have to know how to use it right.
It doesn't behave wide open like it behaves stopped down 2 or 3 stops and it doesn't behave when focusing close like it behaves when focusing further away. But when one know how it behaves, I guess it behaves just wonderful!

Why?

Maybe it is because the depth of field is too thin. There's too much blurriness in the picture. I dont know if it is because it is soft, camera shake, or just super thin depth of field, or a combination of all three.

The camera was on the tripod though so there was literally no shake :/

there could have also been movement by the lemur.

1.2 is hard to nail sometimes....think about it.

according to your exif, the lemur was 1.6m away...for us Americans that refuse to go metric...that's 5.25 feet away.

@ f/1.2, that's a depth of field of only 1.8 inches, or 4.5cm for you metric folks :lol:

a poorly timed breath or fart would knock it all out of whack.

Can I suggest that you click the lemur image and zoom in on photobucket. This in my opinion is one of the best photos i've taken with the 50L @ 1.2. The quality on here has been compressed it looks much better once opened and zoomed in on photobucket.

DO NOT REFUND!

I'm sorry but I don't think eBay is a place where you can ask for a refund simply because the buyer changes his mind?

If the lens is within specs and working, why should you refund?

I really don't mind refunding as long as I don't have to refund his postage then it'll be an issue besides on that website some customers leave you negative feedback if they don't get their way.

There is no way I am refunding anyone until I recieve the lens in one piece. He is going to send it out today or tomorrow.

He has sent me images I can see the issue but he may have hand held and took the photos. I will ask him to take some more test shots using a tripod.

Thanks guys.

also make sure you check the serial number and its the same lens ;)

Had it happen to me when someone bought a hard drive from me, claimed it was DOA and send it back to me, and it entirely different serial number. Luckily I had proof and paypal took my side.

At 1/2500 sec shutter speed, that's one helluva fast lemur.

I kind of agree with that... but ebay can be full of crybabies.
