the only reason you buy a 1.2 is to shoot in 1.2 nothing less. :)

Lightroom, photoshop or DPP all have the 50L profile preloaded, one click really.  I actually turn off the vignette correction most of the time (both in camera, if I'm shooting JPEG, and in post if I'm shooting RAW), as I feel it really adds to the character of the lens.  I do always leave the CA correction on, as even this technically beautiful lens can get a little CA wide open.

+1 great shots!

I'm also not a fan of vignette correction, in general, unless I'm going to re-crop and I want to move the vignette.

I'm absolutely in love with the 5D3/50L combo! I shot a couple live bands in very low light @ ISO 6400 and was pretty damn pleased with the results. Check them out here if you all would like! http://jvillaphoto.com/live_concert/ I have a few more but only added my favorite few :)

Shooting teenage bands that jump all over the stage in low light @ f/1.2 was a pain, but the results are awesome when you get a decent shot!

Nice shots JVilla, I guess if you are going to shoot F1.2 with action subjects you better be ready to throw 80% or more away lol. Still its worth those that turn out like what you got.

some people are mentioning the Zeiss 50mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar ZE Macro as a replacement for the 50mm 1.2 or the sigma 1.4, any feedbak please?

I have both, and while I love my 50L for some stuff you can't even really compare the two in terms of sharpness, the Zeiss absolutely smokes it, especially on the edges.  9.5" minimum focusing distance/Macro capability on the Zeiss is awesome too.  And honestly I rarely shoot my 50L below F2 so I don't feel like I'm missing much.  The focus ring on the Zeiss is butter smooth and has hard stops and Macro and infinity.  As for the bokeh, I think the 50L might blur a little bit better, but the Zeiss bokeh is beautiful in it's own right. 

I guess the biggest thing is whether or not you can live without AF, as the Zeiss is totally manual focus (although it does have focus confirmation).  For video, the Zeiss is superior without a doubt, same goes for sharpness.  I still love my 50L for some stuff though.
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.

If it was about video for me the Zeiss is an obvious choice, since its not its not a choice.

Thanks a lot Bosman! :) It definitely is worth throwing away 80% or more, has a very awesome look to those that are sharp!
