I read a recent post that some of the alternate glass (C/Y) using AF conform chips won't work on 5DIII where it worked fine on 5DII.

Are there any compatibility issues known with older converted lenses? I know that my 400N would need a firmware upgrade to work with the new 1.4X teleconverter (1.4X III). Would it need an upgrade to work with 5D III?

Same qustion for 24-85N and 70-200N?

Thanks
Bill

And same question, but about the Planar N 50/1.4
I'm going to buy 5DMIII, would like to see this lens fully working with this camera.

Thanks,
Vlad

I have recently purchased the 5D III. Tested it using my 50 1.4 last night and the results are fantastic. The AF seems to me to be more responsive and snappy. Also, less hunting than compared to my 5D II. Of note, the firmware on my 50 1.4 is not the lastest. I forget what version.
Update. My 50 is V3.04f and works great. My 100 macro also works just fine.
