The AF on it is more reliable than any of my L lenses. I am starting to wonder if people made up the AF issues because that was the only possible attack on the lens.

Certainly deserved. My copy has been blowing my mind. Used it at two weddings now and the photos are like nothing I have seen.

Zero issues with it on my 5dmkiii or 6d.

Mine is focusing perfectly. Zero issues.

Best lens I have owned.

50A on a 5Dmkiii @1.4

This lens is far and away my most favorite lens ever! I used the 50A on a family session and an engagement session this weekend and the photos that came back were like nothing I have ever seen. The family had four children ranging from age 1 to 5 who were super high energy. I used single point AF and switched AF points. In our hour session I took 350 shots and I didn't see any that miss focused. For the first time ever, I was able to do a family portrait @ 1.4 and no one near the edge of the frame was soft as when I used my 50L. The bokeh, color, and contrast at 1.4 is breathtaking. I posted a few from the session on my facebook page. The only two lenses used were the 50A and the 35A.

That's too bad. Have you thought about exchanging it? I have done that with Canon 50's before. My Sigma 50 is spot on indoors in low light even when focusing across the room. It is also spot on outside in backlit and high contrast situations.

The bad thing about returning it for you is there might be stock for a while...

This lens is like nothing else I have ever used!!!  5Dmkiii @1.6

The lens just arrived from B&H. I currently have the lens my set at +12 on my 5Dmkiii. When the focus hits, I have never seen a lens so sharp. The color and contrast are soooo good. Here is a SOOC shot of my wife @1.4.

What is the hit rate % on your copy? The photo looks really good.

Thanks

I haven't gotten a chances to really test it out now, but it is definitely over 90%. It hasn't missed a shot yet tonight, and I was being pretty tough on it. I have two sessions this weekend, so I will know more after those, but even if I had to manually focus with live view, the lens would more than worth $950.

Help me out if anyone knows why the image didn't display vertical. Its the first I have ever posted on here.
