Canon 6D focussing

Hi

Does any other 6D owners share my occasional frustration with difficulty focussing with certain lenses?

95% of the time my 6D focusses without hesitation, but with my Canon 100mm f2.8 macro and Canon 70-300 f4 -f5.6 it will not autofocus unless the lens is already set at near the focus distance of the subject. I have no problems with other lenses and both lenses work fine with my 7D.

I am wondering whether this is an inherent problem with the 6D or is there a fault?

Comments welcome.
