This is an easy test for AF to pass. Nice images though and I do
agree that 5D AF isnt that bad, especially the center focus point.
The outer points, however, are downright awful in low light
situations. In good light, there is little to complain about though.

Actually in my experience I find that the outer points are pretty unreliable even in good light. The center point is good and works well even in low light but a 1 point AF is kind of ridiculous this day and time.
