Re: 5D3 + 50L + Outer AF points = Much Sadness

I did some quick tests with my 50 1.2L and 5DMKIII and I have similar results with the outer AF points.  The focus is off on the 2 outer banks of cross-type focus points for subjects with indoor or lower level lighting.  In bright, outdoor lighting these focus points seem to perform better but I need to do more shooting.   I have tested the same outer focus points with my 50 1.4, 24-105L, etc and they all are spot on so I'm assuming it has something to do with the 50 1.2L combined with the MKIII.   It will be interesting to hear about any other experiences with this combination and the outer cross-type points.
