Sorry to see this discussion...it seems we are still waiting for a really good all around 50mm.
Both yes and no, mine worked for 6 months and it's been extremely consistent and so perfect it makes most other lenses look like you won them on a vending machine. And the AF and tracking have been as good as the 2470 II. But if it only lasts a few months, that is quite a big issue, I agree. If I had known the working copy would also stop functioning I would have given up on it way back in April.
This is the last chance it gets ..
I just wish canon made a great 50 or 85 1.4....it's really a shame that it has to come down to this.
