I've shot with both and NO. This lens is in a different league.

Well I don't know the species and I don't know where you live, but it's almost certainly a member of the Argiope genus.

hmm it does look similar to the black and yellow garden spider except it doesnt have the typical black and white marking on it's abdomen. That shot was taken in southern Saskatchewan, Canada which is why I was surprised to see such exotic looking creature.

thanks! I agree with the others that this lens is noticeably better than the other smaller L primes. The main improvement over the 135L is probably the lack of CA.

I have found the AF being a bit inconsistent in low light situations while shooting with my 5D mkII. Is it because of the crappy AF of the body? Maybe I should start using the center af point more often :-|

Yes for 5DII, you must only use center point. Outer points will give you inconsistent results. Just get the 5DIII and feel free to use any points. ;)

Yes the 5DIII auto focus is truly killer. All the points work great where as the 5DII I usually only use the center point.

The problem is I am one of those who rather spend money on good glass than an expensive body. I really don't want to spend over 3.5k on a body but I will definitely consider the new 5D when/if the price on it outside of the US drops to like 2700 or less.
So is the 61 point af of the 5DIII hard to use? Is it possible to turn most of the AF points off because up until now I have found the 9 cross point af of the 40D/50D more than good enough for what I have been shooting and having such few amount of af points to choose from has been quite practical and fast.

No, it's not difficult to use at all. I can't remember exactly, but you have options to minimize AF points as well. I just use all 61 points (whichever ones allowed by my shooting situations, but without any restricted doubts like the 5DII) although my main go-to point is center. ;)

As for 5DIII, I really think it's a very good overall camera. I sold my 6 months young 1DIV to get my first 5DIII, promising to get another 1DIV later. However I was impressed enough with the 5DIII, I bought another one to use as backup. 1DIV is an excellent camera and I sometimes miss 1DIV's super fast FPS, but that's about it. To me, 5DIII just works and suits me better. I hope you find one in a good price range soon.
