Recently purchased a 24-105 L lens for my 7D and have found that in many photos are out of focus. Shot a group yesterday and took over 50 photos. Although the photos look o.k. when you get up close it seems nothing in the entire photo is sharp. Is anyone else having this issue and is there a fix?

Mine is really very sharp on my 6D.
1.) What other lenses have you shot with that you feel are working better for you?
2.) About this group shot: How big a group, and how bright or dim was it, and especially, what aperture were the shots taken? It can be impossible to get a whole group in focus if you are shooting at f/4.
If you can shoot at f/8 or f/11 and you still have enough light to keep the shutter speed over 1/100th, it would give you more keepers.

Thanks for the info. It was only a group of 3 and yes mostly shot at F4. I cannot find anything in the entire photo that is sharp though. Maybe the shutter speed just is not fast enough as they were all under 1/100. Thanks again for the insight, very helpful!

Have you tried with IS off?
There have been some reports of IS causing blurring with some copies (my copy is fine). So, if you had IS on, perhaps try some test shots with it on and off and see if you can see any difference.

Info on testing would be fantastic, thank you very much. Also will do some test shots with IS off to see if it helps. Thanks everyone for the help..much appreciated!
