Has anyone had any focusing problems with the 20D? Looking on Rob Galbraith's forum, it seems some people have had a problem with focusing. I by-passed buying a 10D because of concerns over its' focusing,I just hope it's not going to be the same with the 20D!

I think I'll have to answer this myself as obviously no-one on this forum has bought a Canon 20D yet! Looking at R. Galbraith's site again,I think the problem might just ralate to the Canon 16-35 lens! I hope so anyway. Obviously "Steve" never had any problems with his test, although I don't know if he tried any older lenses? I think I'll be brave & buy a 20D anyway. Wish me luck.

I've had my 20D for a couple of days now, my focusing problem is with AF points.....

my problem, not the camera's. Using a EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L USM

this is a quick shot of the stuff on my desk, seems to be in focus to me

I quickly migrated to just using the centre AF point and have had no problems.

Most "Focusing" problems aren't !!

The humsn factor is generally responsible in some way

Pierre, is the 17-85 lens the one being promoted with the camera? If it is, is it worth having? It seems like a bargain, sold as a package.
