    Bloody hell, 5D and 50mm f1.4 is one sharp motherfucker of a combination.

    Mine isn't. *sigh* I really need to do some serious calibration of my lenses.
    What's the problem? And how do you calibrate?

    Edit: Not possible to DIY on 5D Mk1 from what I can see?

    I've got both a 5D Mk1 and Mk2 but the problem with my 50/1.4 is much worse on the Mk2. It just misfocuses and the Mk2 is way more sensitive to that due to the smaller pixel pitch. The lens isn't very good in terms of CA either, been thinking of exchanging it for a Sigma 50/1.4 or possibly a 50/1.2L but the latter just doesn't seem to be worth the asking price. Wish Canon could update their 1.4-1.8 lenses with new optical and mechanical designs.
