Reikan Focal has a option to save your camera settings and download them to your computer. Do it before starting a AFMA. That way, if the process fails, you can restore your camera settings.

The 50mm 1.4 is a cheap crappy lens. Invest in the 35mm 1.4 L instead.Some buy lenses to take photos, some buy the best one, even if its the wrong focal length.
this is all good info. I'm selling my 10-22, 24-105, and 60D as well. I already have the 24-70 II but I think I need to take my lenses to Canon (down the street) to get everything calibrated. Do you guys think I should just get FoCal instead?.... or both Canon Service and use FoCal?I'd first do a AFMA. (Get FoCal). Only consider having Canon adjust your lens if it has a actual problem. Canon will put the lens on a reference body like a 5D MK III and calibrate it to that body. Your body might still be different, so don't bother. The next new body you get will need a different adjustment, so just use FoCal.
Mt Spokaine, I also use the histogram 4 exposure but in difficult back or side light even though the exposure falls within the histogram the shadows may not be as filled as I would like & due to the necessary loc of the LCD screen it's often smeared & very difficult to view any accurate detail in sunny conditions even with me leaning over to provide shade.
For what it's worth, Canon still used the old system until at least August of this year. I know as I took delivery recently of an 'L' lens with the date code "UA08xx" which is August, 2012.
