Re: 5Dmk3 vs D800E Part 1

That was overblown by people who has never shoot the lens. It may take a second or two to move from infinity to MFD (on my 7D) but it tracks even moving objects very competently. Long as you're pre-focused at the near distance the AF catches fast.

I was looking at the 85mm f1.2 to buy. A common complaint is that this lens is slow to focus due to it's internal mechanism for focus having to move all the enormously heavy glass. Reports were that it sometimes takes 1 sec to focus.

Did you find evidence of this on the 5D3?
