my 70-200 f/2.8 OS has a good autofocus hit rate...i have to audjust a bit with mcrofus adj on 50D a +6...with the old 70-200 f/2.8 ii i had to psuh to a +15.

the speed is slower than canon, also because they dont provide a limiter, but i dont think thet af speed of 35mm will be much lower than canon equivalent.

i tought they provide software to adjust focus also on camera that doesnt have mfa... am i wrong? that's a very nice option; never seen on any lens from other manufacturers

Won't be pre-ordering, but will definitely be renting it for a wedding sometime next year for sure. I rented the 85 1.4 and was pretty impressed by it. It's hard to tell how much of the keeper rate was due to my own technique and what was the lenses fault but overall I thought it did pretty good as long there wasn't a huge change in the subjects position.
