    could you be specific what problem you refer to ? no lens is 100%, sure will have some weak point at certain extend...

    I had this before when I was using Canon, I never had any problem. No issues at all. In fact one of my favorites.

    As g88 pointed out, give the specific issue.

    I saw ppl post that they have focusing issues... like out of focus (that's why i founded from my search in the net).

    Used mine half to death (been dropped, hit, kicked, rained on) and it still works like a charm

    its an amazing lens, even though its a 10 year old tech, its still my primary lens on assignment...i find it to be one of the sharpest zoom lens in my arsenal..

    I have problem with the focusing on the 24-70 (bought last Oct).
    Sent back to Canon to calibrate once and the problem still persists.
    Will be sending back again together with my body to check on the problem depending on my schedule.
    Btw, do Canon offer servicing on the camera body? Sorry for asking a question non-related to the thread.

    Bought mine second hand UY code - no problem so far... corners soft as expected (used with 5DMK2) ... not very sharp but sharp enough. Can actually do a lot works with 24-70 focal length mounted on FF
