Mine front focuses HEAVILY (about 50') when I'm trying to focus at infinity :(

Have you tried the USB?

I had similar issues with mine, but the dock fixed it right up. Now it's the most accurate focusing lens I think I have.

Awesome sweeping perspective. Really draws my eyes in.

my copy is front focusing badly on longer distances...maybe 10+ feet. I can't seem to nail focus using the USB dock (I'm not using a proper focus calibration chart). Anyone else having this issue with this lens?

Can you share with me your calibration settings? Do you just adjust the 4th setting?
