Lol. You should see my laptop. That thing is nuts.






Here's what it looks in hand. This camera is freaking tiny, so it looks kinda funny.




Took like ten minutes to get this picture off my FE-210 (didn't want to drop my phone taking such an awkward picture) because it kept giving me a card error. Bleh, I hope it's the card, not the camera.

It's far enough along that I can call it finished. Every once in a while, I'll think of something else I need to do.

What should I do now? I'm afraid if I call Canon they're just going to want it back again, which I'm done with.
You'd be better off returning it to the store you got it from, then just buying a new one.

You'd be surprised how well rage mode can work, especially when all else has failed. Just sayin'.

I should hope so, though he might be past the return window, or it could be used.

Just do a swap at a best buy you never plan on using again. Pay cash.

switcheroo wont work if you're trying to switch it with a NIB, they check for the warranty card, and they check the SN. Unless, of course, you have the blank warranty card for the other one.. then in that case, I'd hate to see the look on the face of the guy that gets a "good deal" at BB for buying an open box and calls up about an issue, only to hear it's been returned 3x by someone else..

(Not that I don't actually condone this. I seemed to recall having similar issues with my 50 f/1.4 on my 60D (sharp in live view, not always thru VF), but that doesn't make it whichever company you return it to's fault.. I can totally agree that it would be frustrating to have to deal with, but I seriously think you should just call the service center and let them know you've had the lens back twice now, tried it on multiple bodies and had the same issue on both, and that you believe it's time they send you a new copy).

Here are the focus test sheets. I cropped in on the sheet for both so you can see the focus better. Focus should be on the middle line (that is where i focused).

Here is at 70mm f/2.8:




Here is at 200mm f/2.8:




I did multiple tests of both, and manually focused back to infinity between tests so the AF would start from the same place, and these results were pretty consistent.

I always forget, do they tell you to test at the widest or the longest? It seems like at 200 it's pretty close, but it definitely appears to be back focusing pretty strong @ 70..

also, not to imply the obvious here, but you were on a tripod, right?
