Thanks for your input. Have you actually used a 6D? And maybe a 5D2 simultaneously?
I figure the 6D's 2012 AF should be better than the 5D2's 2008 AF (well, arguably similar enough to the 5D's 2005 AF Wink)

edit: haha wow, I didn't know that the 5D2 also only had 1 cross-type point (center). Does that make it inferior to T4i / 60D as well Stick Out Tongue
The AF? Yes, the AF on the 5D2 leaves much to be desired. Especially if you've used a 7D (different camera, different target market) which has a VERY nice AF system.

don't confuse it with the 20-year-old $250 35mm f/2, the $800 35mm f/2 IS is a brand new 2012 lens in an entirely different league of its own..
Yes, and supposedly many of Canon's newer lenses focus far better when used with newer bodies such as the 6D.

The problem is, except for the 40mm f2.8, the newer lenses have so far been far pricier than their counterparts (35mm f2, 28mm f2.8, 24-70mm II, etc.)
