Is my Canon 5D mark 3 Faulty?
I have noticed recently that images taken with my Canon 5d mark 3 have appeared soft? At first I thought that maybe my lenses were at fault, even though they were top “L” glass!
The resulting images would be fine if printed at a normal size of 5×7, however when viewed at 100% crop they were soft! I was puzzled by the results as a Canon 5D mark III is one of Canons top professional DSLR Cameras!
I tried using Focal Software in order to micro adjust the lenses to the body, however this made no difference. When using a fast aperture lens the focal plane was easily viewable but even this was soft?
Brainwave! I then tried all my lenses on my colleagues 5D body and sure enough they were tac sharp!
So the conclusion is that I suspect there is a fault with my cameras autofocus system. Well its been packaged up and sent off to be looked at and hopefully repaired by Colchester Camera Repair all under warranty.
