If shooting at f1.4 and 2........

Wide open at 1.2 (Canon), Canon f1.4, Canon f1.8, Sigma f1.4, the problem is the shallow depth of field and not the lens. I use to take shots on autofocus, now if I am shooting something critical like the eyes, I'll quickly autofocus in, then go to manual and move the body, its just to easy to blow the eyes shooting wide open regardless of the lens.

When you are shooting macro, basically the same problem (1:1 macro) with very shallow depth of field, and guess how you are suppose to shoot the shot, by moving your body back and forth, not using autofocus.
