6D lenses for low light focus speed
Feb 16, 2014

Switched from the 5D MKII to 6D. Looking for a prime of similar focal length with better low light focus speed than the EF 100mm f/2.8 macro usm.  I'm looking at the 85mm f/1.8, 100mm f/2.0, or 100mm f/2.8L macro is?  I prefer the 85mm or 100mm focal length.

After looking at the DXO websight I'm thinking the 100mm f/2.0 could be a good choice?

Also interested in a lens good for low light focusing in the focal length around 35mm. I have the 35 f/2 old version, 50mm f/1.8, 40mm f/2.8. I'm looking at the newer 35mm f/2 usm is.

I would like lower budget lenses but would consider the 50mm f/1.2L or 85mm f/1.2L if the low light focusing is better.
