Definitely fake. Compared to the new 24, 28 and 35mm IS lenses, the font for "50mm" on the front of the barrel is wrong. They probably just 'shopped the 35mm f/2 IS, as the distance scale comes directly from it.

I bought some of them a few years back and the paint on "Canon" rubbed right off. Piece of crap.
I'm fairly sure the Canon logo does not substantially add to it's ability to protect the lens.
Did the cap itself stay in place and do it's job, or it didn't do that either and hence the POC rating?
I believe you're conflating the 50mm f/1.4 USM and the 50mm f/1.2 L II USM, which is confusing some folks. there's a vast price difference between the two.
if you're referring to the 50 f/1.4 USM, yes, at ~$350 US or so it's a great price for a great lens.
if you're referring to the 50 f/1.2 L II USM, at ~$1500 US or so it's probably not a best first-purchase lens unless you really know for sure it's what you want. even if you know a 50mm focal length and wide-open shooting is what you want, a lot of people still decide to go with the cheaper 50 f/1.4 USM instead.
Unfortunately the focus screens on the 5D Mark III are not replaceable.
Seriously? But 6D can do it? So silly since i think 5d mk3 has more "pro users" who would want to change the focus screen.
I love the fact that they have placed a non-existing lens on the picture
Can the design get any rounder? =P
40mm f1.2L ?
anyone have an idea how much these lens would retail for?
f/1.4 AND IS? That's kind of a mind-boggling combo. One of these on a 5D3 would let you shoot a a portrait on a moonless night in Arizona!
