Re: 50 f/1.2

Perhaps the OP simply hasn't spent enough time with your camera body and your 50mm lenses.  It does appear that there are others who don't have your camera body and your 50mm lenses.

I got the same "notion" when I was looking for a new 50mm.  A little bit of research turns up quite a few folks with these problems.

Here, let me google that for you...

Folks discussing the 50mm F/1.8 getting stuck to the camera body:

Folks discussing the 50mm F/1.4 focus ring issues.

I've had the Canon 50 f/1.4 for more than five years, and I've never noticed a "freeze." I've also owned the Canon 50 f/1.8 for about the same amount of time, and never got it "stuck" in my camera. Where do you get these notions?

If you want the "best" lens, buy the Canon 50 f/1.2.
