When I use live view instead of the VF on the 5D3 with my 70-200, its go clunk clunk clunk focus. It's mad slow to focus but is this normal? Viewfinder is fast.

Live view is probably set to contrast detect focus. This is slower than phase detect which is what is used when the viewfinder is used.

The clunk is probably IS engaging. Turn it off and try again.
