Are the newer chipped-in versions better in terms of QC?

Awesome lightning shots!

I find these so hard to capture. Not the tech side of it, but like being in the right spot, not getting poured on, having nice scenery to go with it.

The timing is tough to nail as well.

intervalometer + long exposures? Seems like an easy way of capturing it, though I've never tried. Spotting lightning in socal is quite rare.

No i mean that part is easy.

I mean timing as in getting into position to get good shots of lightning with nice scenery.

You kinda have to camp out and wait for it when they forecast it, or get lucky and it just happens.

It's taken years of scoping out locations to cover any direction the storms may come from. It's absolutely the hardest part. This year I think I've found a couple of really good areas nestled in a valley that the storms roll by but not over. We only got 5min of really light drizzle on us though the storm was as intense as I've ever seen. Got over 50 good strike photos in the 2 hours we were out!!

Thanks!
Here's a quick vid I did from the 50-ish bolts..two different cameras so you'll see a shift in light.

Love this lens... but recently I've been noticing some problems with the focus scales not showing the correct focus distance...
For example, here's a shot of one of those lens test charts (may not be used correctly but it's something to focus on) at 70cm distance and 0.7m marked focus distance

And the same shot at 0.5m marked focus distance

Both shots have been cropped quite heavily - but... anyone have any ideas?
