What are you guys take on micro adjustments on the faster lenses,just for the sake of optimal performance and peace of mind?

I've always been of an 'if I'm happy with the results,then leave it alone' way of thinking. But do any of you think it's best to check wider aperture primes,just to be sure?

If its not getting a reasonable amount in focus all the time I adjust otherwise I leave them alone

Absolutely.
You may be getting very good results that you are happy with, but still missing the excellence that a lens is capable of.
No way to be sure without trying.

Thanks very much both of you for the replies.

Even though I've always been very happy with the results my 135 and 85L have produced. I've always wondered if I should take the plunge and see just 'how close' they are to optimal performance.

Think that will have to be a project one nice day :)

you won't see any better pictures produced with any newer camera or lens - 5D2 & a 135L with beautiful light and a photog that knows what they are doing - bravo


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
