Thanks everyone for the input and discussion. I am going to order this lens with the hope that it will be ok for my 5D2.

If I need to send it in for firmware fix or other kind of tuning when I upgrade my body, well that is not nice. But the lens is attractive enough so will cross that bridge when I get there.

I am not sure how to test it when it arrive.

I will try the simplest. Taking photo of good contrast object at 1m, 2m, 5m, 10m and beyond at 1.4 with tripod, MLU and remote trigger. And tweak the MFA a bit and see if I can get consistent focus on all distance.

Will report back.
