Just put some talkum inside the lens mount and blow it away with a hot fan. It will rip the dust particles away with it :) Worked like a charm for me.

Not the usual wide open shots. I really like the rendering in those situations.

I just made a purchase for this lens on B&H! Took advantage of the holidays price drop and the canon rebate they had on there, it was too good to turn down. Can wait to pair this lens with my 5D Mark III.

Read so many reviews on its back focus issue and its "not so sharp imagery". Cant wait to see for my own eyes.

Welcome to CR TNguyen and Congrats on your 50L II :)

The 50L is an AWESOME lens. AFMA is almost required. Most of the complaints were due to older cameras. With 5D III adv. af points, it does help alot. Once AFMA is properly made, this lens brings "WOW" factor to your photography.
Bodies: 1DX -- 5D III
Zooms: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Primes: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

Nice shots and welcome to the club!  I think all of us were hesitant about buying this lens based on the bad wrap it has on the web, but as your photos along with the others' show, it's just a matter of knowing how to use this lens and using it for the right purposes.
