Where to get lenses and camera tested for focus problems? (Nashville)

Ever since I got 5DRS, I’ve been getting an insanely high proportion of out of focus photos with 70-200/2.8. With 80% of the images of stationary objects looking defocused, I am trying to figure out how to check if the camera and lens have to be adjusted to each other. The same lens has no problems on Sony A7R. Any idea who in Nashville could help me with this for a fee? I asked a lens rental place, they said that’s not a service they provide.

    before you even do that — do you have that problem on the 5DRS with any other lens? Is it something unique to the focal length range? Does that particular 70-200 focus accurately on other Canon (not Sony) full frame bodies? Is it possible that at 50MP, the lens can’t keep up — i.e. that it’s first generation non-IS lens.

    If none of that helps — Canon in Jamesburg, NJ did fabulous work, when I was shooting for a living and had a CPS membership. Or I might try to rent/beg/borrow another copy/version of the 70-200 to try with the 5DRS.

      It’s a gen.II IS lens. It produces amazing results on the 36MP Sony. The problem isn’t that it can’t keep up, but that it gives me blurry images most of the time, with an occasional non-blurry photo using the same settings, support and focus.
