I think i've been convinced to go with the 24-105 f4 as a "do-it-all" lens now. I am intrigued my the mkii, but i'm seeing 6D/24-105 bundles for right at 2K which might be hard to pass up. Is the 6D autofocus as bad as everyone makes it out to be? That's my only hesitation, but I'm sure it's overhyped to a certain degree, right?

The AF is fine but the point spread is limited. The outer points will regularly fail to focus depending on the subject, forcing you to focus and recompense for static subjects and crop for framing with moving subjects. The center point is very good, it is accurate and will focus in near darkness.

Edit: changing the focus point is annoying, you reach up with your thumb to activate and then use the d-pad to move the focus point.
