Hi all.

I've recently read this whole thread, reading with keen interest possible thinking about buying later this year (I like to get my research in early!!).

Never thought I'd hear myself say this but I think I'm keen on the whole bokeh, arty, film type look, all before sharpness. I feel the need for something a little different. Also, I love the look and size of the lens which is a big thing for me.

I've been reading all about the many querks and focusing challenges!

I have a 5D3 so I expanded my search a little further to see if I could find any other 5D3 + 50L experiences. Most interesting one was this, where someone starting off with all the outer focus points being out, then sending into canon, on second round of calibrating, success....

Thought I'd share in case anyone is interested.

I have had the 50L for a few years and never had any of the problems I read about for years before just buying it. I started out with it on the 5D3 and later that year got the 5D4. It performs great on both. I have also used it with an adapter on the Sony A7R ii. I suggest not worrying about all the negative stuff about it on the internet. It will paralyze you. Buy it somewhere you can return or exchange it and you’re golden.

Fair shout, couldn't agree more. I'm sure if I was born 50 years earlier I would have had so much more time on my hands as I wouldn't have spent days on end reviewing and reading up on my next purchase!! Not just camera stuff either!

Thanks for the reassuring post.

I've put the nifty (I never normally use it as i dont like the feel and sound of it) on my camera today just around the house, I think it is a focal length I could spend most of my time at. Mostly taking photos of my 2 and 4 year olds. My next buy will either be the 50L or the new canon 85mm, but to be honest, I wouldn't get as much use out of the 85L, and it's quite a bit bigger than I'd like. I find the 24-70ii quite a chunky heavy beast. But I love the size of my 35mm F2 IS (very similar to 50L) and I like the weight of my 16-35 F4 (only a tiny bit heavier than the 50L). So focal range and ergonomics look perfect.

Focus issues/Internet scares aside, the thing I like least of the pics I've seen on this thread, is the CA. Do you all learn to live with it/embrace it, or can you partly correct in post?

CA seems to be a common issue with a wide range of lenses. I just fix it in post. I’ve seen very few lenses that don’t have it.

I use 50 and 35 the most. The 35 f/2 IS is great but I do miss my L v1. I have been fighting the temptation to they the L II or the Sigma 35 Art. I like 85 but for as much as I use it, I should have stayed with the 1.8 instead of getting the L II. But you’d have to pry that out of my cold dead hands too.

I have been using Sony more and more and I’m enjoying staying with mostly more affordable lenses. The image quality is still top notch. I’m not good enough to wring everything out of any lens yet.

I just live with it. It is soft and dreamy up close, but I just love the look of the portraits .
