What the heck is wrong with my camera?!

[ Edited ]

Pretty recently I began having some MAJOR focus issues- regardless of camera settings. I have calibrated my micro-adjustment settings between my camera and all lenses using "FoCal" and it seemed to fix the problem at the time, but after a shoot the next day I realized I am still having the same issues. I have already sent in my camera to canon and they returned it to me saying that there simply aren't any issues here. I am having the same issue regardless of what lens I'm using.

Any thoughts/tips/suggestions are appreciated. I will attach a straight-from-camera image as an example. Thanks!

I shoot with the Canon 6D. Canon 85mm 1.4 1/100 f/2.8 ISO 320

How did you perform the lens calibration? Live View or view finder?


I'm wondering if it's the diopter that needs adjustment on the view finder?

Welcome to the forum.


Can you post the original images (or a link to them)?
