Just received this lens after a couple of weeks wait for it to come in stock.
I have read on here of numerous people who have had numerous L lenses, and have had to swap them two, or even three times.
I did a lot of reading about this lens, and viewed many images.
I have tried this lens on the tripod, off the tripod, IS off, IS on, setting one and two, tried many shutter speeds, f stops, ISO's, and cannot get it to produce an image I consider to be what this lens is capable of.
Does anyone know of a combination of settings to get the best possible image from this lens. My camera is a Canon EOS 1D MKII, shooting in raw.
If this lens is a bad example, is it best to get it swapped in the hope that Canon have boxed a good one, or is it best to have it calibrated under warranty, even though it is only a day old to me.
Many thanks for your help on this one.
