Looks great! Was your lens front focusing or back focusing?

it was front focussing ,from feedback i'm getting around the web its seems to occur mainly with C sized sensors and virtually always seems to be front focussing .when i had my 1D3 with a H sized sensor it was spot on with no adjustments needed at all

I used the lens for the first time during a trip to Mull in the Inner Hebrides. Here is one of my favourites from the visit.

cooltiger i have used ,owned and borrowed various canon cameras in the nearly two years of lens ownership ,my findings are that it works great with canon H sensor models and also full frame cameras ,but tends to be a shade finicky with C sensor models .it have taken me over 8 months to get it working to any degree of WOW factor with the 80D ,although my pics looked reasonable in low iso summer use as the winter has progressed with higher iso values needed i have noticed a degradation in i.q .this has lead to around a month now of doing micro adjust to get it spot on .i think i have now achieved this but by publishing my findings it seems most canon C sensors tend to front focus with these lenses .judging by remarks from other users
