As far as I am aware, Canon service centres don't test camera and lens as a unit. If you send a camera+lens to them, they test them separately on their test beds and if they are both 'within tolerance' they are deemed to be OK even though the original mismatch still exists. I would say this makes perfect sense because if they adjust the camera settings to suit the lens you sent it with, you may annoyingly have a new and identical problem with other lenses in your kit that were previously OK.

Well I've got two DSLRs and about seven lenses of various types so I think I'll just muddle along. Sounds like I'd be opening up a can of worms trying to get that lot adjusted and anyway, it's not exactly critical for me. It's only a hobby. Smile

I tried out the Quick Mode focussing points today and they work well. So very pleased. Smile
