For me AF is not very interesting - I don´t like to make my image composition focus point orientated. I work with the EOS 5D + EE-S screen - and have the mirror replaced with an 100% silver mirror - no longer AF on this camera
I have blurred images of my active child - but I have enough sharp ones too.
For the birth of my second child I took my 5D without AF, the DIY converted Canon FD 24mm/1.4L and Minolta Rokkor 58mm/1.2 and it was fine. In a bag at home I had a second 5D (original) with the Canon EF 50/1.4 - the lens long unused. Have the AF lens on the camera to get my wife take some photographs of me and the child.
But I have no problems if others like AF and those front and back focus problems...
