My 5D MK II has slower but more accurate af, particularly in low light, easily beating my 1D MK III and 7D.  My

Is this the center point only? can you get any of the other points to achieve focus lock in low light?

I only use the center point on my 5D MK II in low liight, same as my 7D and 1D MK III.  The center point on all of them is best in low light, and they do not track as well, if at all using outer points in very low light.

I know this thread is a little old, but it seemed more appropriate to resurrect it than to start another.

What other Canon camera would you say the 5Dii's AF is closest to?  I've used a few different rebels and a 50D, how does it compare to those?

In practice the 50D is not far off
