I´m glad you´re happy Viggo. But so was I for the first couple of weeks, before the AF went bananas. I´ll be interested in learning if it is stable this time. If so, I might reassess this lens. Optically it is quite extraordinary (for the price) and if the AF works on top, it is a bargain.
Nice to see new posts in this thread. I just a few days ago got my 3rd copy of the 50 Art, and so far it's actually working !
Please don't tempt me like this. I'm holding out for the rumored ef 50mm 1.2 L II.
Lol! Yeah, I had to sell my 200 f2 and the same day it was a special offer on the 50 Art, nearly 50% off, so I had to get one. And my god what an epic lens it is. My favorite focal length and the IQ is basically only rivaled by the 200 I sold, and now that it works it works on every distance also without using the docking. Roughly adjusted at +7 and it just hits everything.
