When focusing this lens are you guys just using center focus or on the auto focus points?

I usually use the center point. However, I have used the outer points when needed.

This. I dont use auto focus point, but I do use all the focus points as required and select them manually

Thx for the replies guys. Reason I asked was because
I took this lens out today to get some pictures of my
son, camera on auto focus points and many of my pics
came out soft or just not in focus. Stationary objects
the lens did fantastic.

I'm sure it was user error. Any techniques with this
lens when shooting moving subjects?

With primes shooting wide open I find it best not to focus recompose. If shooting people I make sure one of their eyes is on one of my focus points when taking the shot. I also make sure the shutter speed is fast enough to minimize any blur from movement.

I have a small scratch/bright spot on the barrel probably caused by the metal bits on my strap.

+1 I also ensure I use the one of the cross type autofocus points on the 5D MKIII. One point to add as I am ready to throw mine out of the window with the inconsistent autofocus I have been getting this weekend. Is it just me or, when taking portraits, does anyone get more sharp keepers by using spot metering rather than any of the the other metering modes ??

no prob. It is highly effective. Corrects the vignetting as well as the minor distortions.

good call on the lens correction tip!

this lens is fantastic. SUPER SHARP WIDE OPEN! :)
