I hate these kind of threads but Im kind of at a crossroads right now with my gear.
I was unhappy with the AF performance on my 5DII so I recently got the Eg-S focusing screen. I found that manual focusing is much easier and more accurate than auto focusing and I find that Im probably going to manual focus from now on.
With that said I look at my gear and wonder why Im keeping the 50L? I mean I love it to death, its my favorite lens and the only reason why Im still even with Canon and not sportin' a D700 right now. I just cant see the logic in have a $1300 lens that I wont even autofocus with when there's alternatives at a much better price minus the AF capability. So here I am, making a cliche "this vs that" thread. I want to know honestly how you owners of the 58mm f/1.2 feel about it. I want to know all the pros and cons, please dont hold back. I am seriously debating picking one up and selling the 50L.
I know Nicksan knows how much I love the 50L and swear by it, so maybe he can understand the craziness of this. Where's gasrocks? I know he's all about old manual lenses...
