No reason to hate on your rebel. Looks like it would've been a great photo had it been in focus. Looks more like a lens or user error problem.

Isn't that 85 known for missing focus? Also, try not using BBF. Maybe you focused then moved slightly. You don't have much DoF to work with so any movement could through it off.

The camera is either defective or you are doing something incorrect. I took this shot with a junk T3I last weekend.

That isn't remotely the issue the TS is having with his rebel. His problem is that it appears lenses and the body are front or rear focusing, and the camera doesn't have MFA. Showing a landscape at an infinite DOF isn't helpful in this regard.

Like I said, its not the fact that its a rebel. Something is defective or he's doing something wrong. It poi ts toward defective or out of calibration. The title of the thread is "hate my rebel". So im responding it has nothing to do with the fact that there is a junk rebel badge on the camera. I say this is exactly to do with the title. My point is that this is not endemic of the camera across the board. I can post pics at f/1.8 focused close as well. But that's not the point.

It is meaningless to compare 85mm f/2.2 focused at 15' to 20mm f/11 focused near HFD.

He never painted the Rebel line with that broad a stroke, he simply is calling out his own copy of the Rebel. I would hate a copy of a camera too that didn't perform well, I have had a few of those in the past. Not sure what the big deal is, his camera and/or his lens combos seem to be having issues, plain and simple.

This may be true. My point is that his problem has nothing to do with the fact he has a rebel. Maybe that his rebel or his lens is out of adjustment.

But if it wasn't a rebel it would have MFA and a ~+16 adjustment would have put that picture dead on.

Not all non-rebels have MFA... ;) (well since the 50D, there is only one that doesn't, but still) :)

Yeah and remembering that frodge has the 60D I almost went ahead and got it out of the way.

I've been lucky that none of my lenses need MFA. I don't have an awful lot of lenses. But they all work. If I noticed any problems with a new lens I would just exchange it with the bodies in have now. Its also safe to say that any lens I buy in the fiturwt, used with these two bodies that either front or back focused, would be the lens out of adjustment, because I have no issues with the stuff I own now. I also wonder if the 60d has some sort of self adjustment, because I have not read a lot of complaints about focus issues caused by lack of MFA over the years.

Half of those are about focus assist. You win. Should I get a 7dii or a 5dmkiii? Who is helping with the payment plan?:lol:

P.S. I can do a search on 7dmkii focus problems and come up with much more problems, and that had MFA.....

I've been very lucky that most of my lenses haven't needed much mfa over the years. But the 1 thar did, the 85 1.8, was borderline unusable without it. So its one of those features that you can do without, jntil you must have it.
