Bought a brand new 50/1.2L today...

Finally decided to get the 1.2 version. My oh my...why haven't I done this before (perhaps the pricetag, dunno). Anyway, this baby smokes my workhorse 24-70 on so many levels. Microcontrast, saturation/tones, rendition, character. Furthermore, out of the box it focuses perfectly on both my 5D bodies. I'm in love. Interesting fact. This one was manufactured in october 2011 and I've compared it with a colleague of mine. His lens is way older and has a more distinct issue with focusshift and is softer wideopen. I've heard rumours that newer versions are supposed to be better but I'm not sure Canon has, or ever will confirm this.
