Although I don't have a Sigma 50, I do have the Sigma 85.  And it definitely focuses better on my 5D3 than on my 7D--albeit with a little MFA.  So I wouldn't be at all surprised if most or all of your Sigma 50's focusing issues disappear with the 5D3.  And there's nothing wrong with using MFA.  If you can get your Sigma 50 to work well with some MFA, I think that's far preferable to continuing to play the "Sigma lottery."
