When the lens is in AF, can you still override the focusing by turning the focus ring? Or no?

Thanks!

Because I have a 1.2 L in my hands at the moment. It's in AF but when I turn the ring, the focusing mechanism would not turn. I thought this was normal.

It is. You should have known by now that the 85 1.2L (and the old 50 1.0L) is a "fly by wire" lens. The focus ring needs power (electrical power) to operate, even when in manual focus mode, i.e, the lens must be atached to the body and the camera powered on.
