I think I need to formally retract my Sigma 85 review. 85L is in beast mode right now.

Why not keep both? Use Canon lens when speed and accuracy are needed in situations such
as street photography, moving subjects. etc. Use Sigma lens in situations such as
portraits where re-takes are not problematic. Also I would presume the build and durability
of the Canon lens is superior. You also will always have a back-up if one of the lenses
fails.

I would love to keep both but if I have funds available, rather than keeping a double focal length i would probably get the 50L since it is pretty close to the 85. I have sold myself on the Canon, it has been doing awesome last few days. Sigma is up for sale . Canon is worth the price to have the better focus. All the good qualities of the sigma dont mean anything if it isn't in focus, not worth the gamble at weddings and paid gigs.
