Are you using a focus point? Back button AI Servo? I would even say F4, mostly to increase DOF.

In my case, once I figured out all of the above my keeper rate soared.

that was center point, single shot, rear button

and the whole point for me is to use 1.2

going to F4 to solve the problem isnt really a solution

Try Servo. It's just a guess, but I'm thinking slight movement is putting your subject out of the focus field. There just isn't time to reframe with such a thin DOF.

Had an 85 on loan from CPS this week... within 10 frames I was sold. I don't know why I held out on this one for so long. As much as it pains me to say it, the 50L can't touch it (let's hope they get it together with the 50LII next year.) At 1.2:

Yes, i have the same oppinion. 50 1.2 is not the level of the 85 1.2 wide open. 50 1.2 is usable @ 2.0 and higher.
