Is the 50mm 1.2L worth buying?
Sep 11, 2008

I read a lot about problems with this lens, especially backfocusing. What exactly is backfocusing? I own the 24mm 1.4L and the 135mm 2.0L lens, will the 50L be the same quality as those? What about the 50mm 1.0L? How does it compare in sharpness and autofocus speed to the newer 50mm 1.2L?
