Summary: I can't explain how much I adore this lens, and how worth the money it was. I own a 13 year old copy that still looks and functions like new. That's really saying something about the build quality of this lens. I you invest in this lens not only will you be taking your photography to a whole new level, but you will have a lens that will last you your whole career. The optics you'll see from this lens are just outstanding, something I can't get from any other.
Summary: Best lens I have! I have a few prime lenses and this is very sharp. Very heavy but that is not a n issue for me focusing is kind of slow but I use it for portraits so is not an issue. Can't go wrong. V2 is faster but more expensive. Can't go wrong with it.
Summary: I bet if you are considering buying the 85mm 1.8 you came across this lens and thought to yourself why is the 85mm 1.2 so much more expensive? Is it sharper? Is it that much better? Not necessarily. This is a specialty lens, and that's one reason I don't own it (I also can't afford it, lol). Photographers who buy it are aiming for a specific look that's created with 1.2 aperture.
Summary: Pros: tack sharp,incredible bokeh,low light ability Cons: none so far given the upside of the lens Pros: Fabulous image quality, clarity and color rendition. Smooth OOF areas a.k.a. Bokeh Big, manual focus only works with shutter button partially depressed Pros: Fabulous bokeh, contrasts, and color. Pulls in the light.
Excerpt: Otro de los componentes que podemos tener en una cámara es este, es un objetivo de la marca Canon, otro gran fabricante, y en cuestión de objetivos y demás complementos veo que se lleva la palma. Este es bastante fácil de utilizar, aunque siempre que lo he probado ha sido bajo la atenta mirada y control del propietario, un fotógrafo profesional amigo mío.
