I noticed that my Canon EOS 3 is backfocusing horribly with my 50mm f1.4 USM. The lens didn't need any adjustments on my 6D or 5DS but it's awful on my EOS 3. Is there a fix for this? I'm still in the return period at B&H for it so I can send it back, but I'm hoping there's something I can do aside from that.

I would suggest you post this on another thread so that it can be responded to in its own right. Here it is somewhat buried under another topic and thus likely to get as many responses.

When I was looking to buy an EOS 3, I read a number of post in which people complained about back focusing issues. The only real answers I ever saw where that the body and lens needed to be sent in to have the mirror assembly adjusted as it wasn't something you could do yourself. You could contact Canon to see if they will still perform this type of job. Years ago I sent an old 5D to them and they adjusted my body for my lens as I was having front focusing issues. I can't remember if I paid anything. If I did, it didn't cost much. People also said to take the focusing screen out and re seat it, but I'm not sure how this would help with AF.

I checked Canon's website and it states they don't service the EOS 3 anymore. I'll give them a call anyway and see if they can do anything. If not I can always send it back to B&H and go from there. Thanks!

This seems odd to me. Back focusing is usually a function of the lens changing its focal point as the lens is focused or the FL is adjusted. This attribute is usually addressed in lens reviews and fixed for the lens. A good example of this is the recently released Canon EOS RF 70-200. See this link:
https://www.dpreview.c​om …r-rf-70-200mm-f2-8-lenses (external link)

In it Canon clearly states that the firmware fix applies to the lens and not the body.

So my question is, have you experienced the focusing issue with one lens or is it common across multiple lenses?
That should help to confirm if it is the body or the lens.

It's happening with all of my lenses, but it's most noticeable on the 50mm. My 40mm f2.8 STM shows this, but it isn't as obvious since it's only f2.8. The 50mm is visibly off through the viewfinder as is my 100mm f2. That's what makes me think it's the body as every lens is back focused while most of my lenses are perfect on both of my digital bodies.

Hmmm... That is interesting, but your results certainly do suggest an issue with the body. I guess I should ask has the body always had this issue or has it been knocked or had service done on it that might have moved the autofocus sensor in the body?

It's had this issue since I got it. All four rolls I've shot with it so far have had this issue. Haven't dropped it or anything so I don't think it's something that I did.

I thought I had posted this before (I tried to) but anyway. I suggest accessing the Canon Community Forum, which is a help line for anyone who uses Canon gear. It is free to join and has the support of Canon.

https://community.usa.​canon.com …p/generalcamera​discussion (external link)

There are lots of highly knowledgeable people on the site and they may offer some insight that might save you money and inconvenience. Good luck.

Hi Sapearl:

Both, to me, are great shots, but I think that monochrome particularly suits the second one as it focuses on texture and form.

I've shot and developed my first roll of 35mm color film the other day. These were shot on Fuji X-tra 400. I'm trying to get accurate colors out of my scans. Does anyone see any color cast in these images? Lately all of my color scans on MF film have had a green color cast to them.

Totally agree with you Tron and that's why I processed the conversion to b/w. It's part of the narrative though, where the color shot sets up the context.
