It is indeed an interesting lens, and certainly one I would look into if i had a need.

Very interesting discussion and great photos here, guys. I've been procrastinating over this lens for quite a while now. Cannot decide for a 24-70/II as I'd definitely miss larger apertures and I've got other primes. If it was for sure that newer batches are clear from this erratic focusing behavior - and especially on 5D3 - it's time to give it a go.
You could consider a used 7D or 1D4 (the former has more reach but the latter will retain resell value better), but they will not be a match for your 5D3's low light performance.
In short, keep doing maths and get good at estimating distances and very wide aperture become more than a 1 eye focus machine.
