And therein is the big problem I have. I did a shoot today, and my left/right vs. center are still quite different. Sure enough, shooting some full length portraits I focused on the face on the far right or left, and ended up back focusing about a foot, soft face. Sigh. I thought they had "fixed" it close enough, but not quite. Focus on the center was dead on.
I now have a whole series of them like this. Notice the belt (this was in an old factory), it is maybe a foot behind her. It's crisp and sharp in all these shots, and her face art is soft. Other head shots with the same lens but center focus were perfect.
Keep at it until you get it how you want it. It really does make a difference, despite the nay sayer's.
