Hi I'm considering purchasing a 5dmk2 as a third camera since the prices are really good at the moment, but it seems to get a lot of bad reviews regarding it's auto focus. Can you 5dmk2 owners share your thoughts and is the AF really that bad. I would be using it for weddings and portraits.

Thanks

No,  c'mon.. almost half the wedding photographers out there use it...  too many people worry about shooting test cards and not enough about real things and people..

I'll second that! Same I say about the 50 L. A truly wonderful lens, but if you shoot test-charts at mfd, it seems to suck, but put it on a 5d and it will blow your mind.
