In his recent blog post, Roger Cicala tested several Canon cameras for AF accuracy and found that the 1DX, 5D Mk III and T4i/650D all focused better than the other previous models: http://www.lensrentals.com …ity-part-3b-canon-cameras
It appears that Canon has improved AF consistency in their most recently released cameras. So, I was wondering what is the experience of the owners of these new cameras with regard to MFA?
1.) If you have a new 1DX or 5D Mk III, and you have lenses which you used with a previous Canon body, what is your experience with MFA on the new body compared to the old body?
2.) Does the new body even need any MFA with your old or new Canon lenses?
3.) Can you see the difference in AF on the new cameras like Roger did in his story?
4.) From what I have read, the 5D Mk III AF is light years ahead of the 5D Mk II but does a 70-200 f/2.8 IS Mk II lens that needed +8 MFA on the old Mk II body now require less MFA (or none at all) on the Mk III?
I found Roger's article to be very interesting and I would like to know how his results compare to your experience, so feel free to add any additional comments that you feel are relevant.
