How is the 6D with 1.2 lenses on non center focus points? I know using the center and recompose is a high miss rate at such a shallow depth.

On my 5dmk3, there is plenty of outside crosstype points to use.

I own both the 50/85II 1.2s.

I had no issue with my 6D and the 50 f/1.2 lent by one of my friend who has it.

I got great results and it was a pleasure to use it.

50mm is a bit narrow for my style of photo and I'm waiting patiently on the new 35mm f/1.4 L II which should arrived I do not know when (I bought the 40mm pancake instead and for the price it's just top! )

but the quality of the 50mm f/1.2 is great and the focus is fast and accurate with the 6D

Oh good to hear. Thanks.

And nothing wrong with the current 35L could be a tad sharper at 1.4. But still regarded as one of top canon lenses ever. Buy it used for cheap, and sell it when the new one comes out.

I love mine. I only own the 35/50/85 lenses.

True but it's no used equipment sold really where I'm leaving so the second hand market is a bit difficult for me...

will see by Christmas if nothing is coming or announced to replace it I will buy the original oneĀ 

for now I just enjoy the 40mm f/2.8 which is just a pleasure to use due to the small size and the image quality.
