85 1.2L II focus question on 5D
Jun 29, 2007

Just got the new 85 1.2 L II lens. I know it is supposed to have faster autofocus vs the older 85 1.2L version. It does seem faster than the older version (as I remember, I havn't used the older one in some time). However, maybe I was expecting too much. The new 85 L II is still significantly slower in autofocusing than other L lenses like the 70-200 2.8, especially when focusing from one extreme to the other. Is this normal for this lens, or do I have a problem with it?

Thanks.
