I keep hearing people complain about the focusing problems with the f/1.4. I guess I have a pretty good copy because mine works superbly when paired with the 5D3.
That said, focus shift is not a problem for me. The f/1.4 comes out only when light levels are real low and I'm shooting wide open most of the time. For reasonable light shooting, I use the 24-70II which is as sharp as anything at 50mm at almost all aperture settings.

When it comes to gear, it is better to vote with your wallet. Bitching on online forums like a lunatic doesn't get you anywhere!
