Canon 50mm f1.2 - are the issues sorted now ?

I am thinking of getting this lens to go on my 5D MKIII.

I have read loads re the focusing issues and the like ... but they are, in the main, from 2007/8 or with secondhand lenses at a guess produced around that time as opposed to new.

Can anyone say if Canon has ironed out the issues - or did they ever make an announcement re the issues ?

I want the lens but don't want to fork out the sort of money it costs to get one that is rubbish ! I am looking to buy with a 135 f2 and see no such issues with that lens on forums.

The lens is for candid and wedding use, some at close range and big aperture - thus thinking 1.2 as opposed to 1.4.

Comments appreciated.
