PS. the 50/1.2 doesn't suffer from "back-focusing", it's "focus shift"

It's a lens I wanted to love and have bought and sold twice for severe focus problems. I am currently using a Sigma 50mm f1.4 that I checked and outperformed my 50F1.2L at everything but shooting at f1.2.

Sometimes the red ring is just trim.


Call me crazy. I happen to like photos of cats.

Interesting... I bought my 50L in 2011 and I had the Sigma 50 and the Canon 50 1.4 at home at the same time. It was a good opportunity to test them against each other and the Sigma was noticeably the softest at 1.4

Funny thing is that the Canon 1.4 was a tad sharper than the L but with less contrast and not so nice bokeh. I gave back the Sigma and sold the Canon 1.4 and am happy with the L ever since.
