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: it's my favorite Prime Lens. Love it, The sharp is awesome. The price is well. Crystal are beautiful and is a weighty Lens, but really is worth every penny. I recommend this lens for every one. If you want your images change it, buy it now!!!!
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: This this has become my 'normal' lens since I bought it on Ebay a couple of months ago. The image quality is incredible and consistent through the lens' remarkable range of capabilities. I bought a mark II awhile back and was pleased with it's ease of use and speed (it's about twice as fast as the mkI...great for action etc.) but not particularly wowed by image quality. Sold it for a little profit and bought the I on a whim...'twas a bargain.
Summary: Great lens for portraits and cool looking shots. Playing around with the aperture and taking photos with this lens is a lot of fun. Shoots great in lower light settings and makes the picture look clean if you can do it right.
Summary: This lens is like getting night vision goggles, but classier :) Amazing. No other words. It delivers the best DoF possible and it autofocuses fast!! Tack sharp,very quiet,it's a dream! So what if it weighs a bit more than you average lens? It earned it's right,because this is NOT your average lens!! It's a crown jewel. Worth every penny!! I am in love with it!!
Summary: J'avais déjà possédé la version 1 du 85mm 1.2 L de CANON sur un boitier argentique et j'en gardais un souvenir fabuleux. Sur la version 2 le résultat est à la hauteur des meilleures optiques au monde, l'idéal pour les amateurs de portrait et de photos à basse lumière. L'optique est assez lourde et l'autofocus peut hésiter un peu en basse lumière, il faut donc être vigilant car la profondeur de champ est exceptionnellement faible et donc le flou vite arrivé.
