This new 85 1.4 going to be a $2300 USD +/- $200

Which is just not worth it when Sony has a 85 1.8 for $600

The game done changed



It's $1600 + tax

The Nikkor 85 1.4G is one of the best lenses in the Nikon lineup (AF performance notwithstanding) and now the Canon equivalent is priced the same so game on.

Don't get me wrong, I wish it was 1000USD but at least it's not knocking on 2000 bucks

interesting move on canon for the pricing of the 85L f1.4.

the nano blue coating is a new AR/light optimizing stack.

There are several different materials stacked on top of each other to obtain a specific result.
Each material can be from 25 to 150 angstroms thick. give or take an angstrom here or there.

funny thing, is all coatings are basically at the nano level... as in angstroms.

Interesting for sure. Wasn't expecting that price for the 85L.

Wondering if there's a catch.

Did it meet your weight requirements?

Adorama says 5" or 85cm MFD. That doesn't add up.

85cm makes sense. 5" would make it go beyond 1:1 and into MP-E macro territory.

Ben, it's under 1000 grams and that'll do. A bit heavier than the Tamron, but it's also faster (1.4 vs 1.8).

Lighter than the 85L (1.2) and the (cough cough) Sigma 85 Art.

Let's hope this is a series 1.4 primes with IS and that anti-fringe magic goo

First the 35, now the 85, what's next? 50? 28?

Canon & Nikon are both due for an updated 50. We'll see who gets it first Seriously, though, a 50 f/1.4 w/ IS would be something.

I'm assured I'm getting mine before Friday. Can't wait 3 weddings this weekend.

Mine comes in Tuesday! I'll also report back with results after the weekend but my expectations are stratospheric, bordering on unreasonable.

If it focuses quickly, has low CA, and a bit of 135L magic, I'll be happy.

How do you like the 45 VC for weddings? I recently picked one up for travel but am thinking I may use it during certain parts of the day where 35 feels too wide (first dance, some PJ moments where I leave some distance, etc.). Is it a good performer at f/2?

I like it. It's never going to replace a 24-70 for PJ stuff (not for me) but controlled shooting (portraits, details) it's awesome. I've shot a lot of drunk dancing with it and it's good. AF speed is slow (as you know).

This is a 24-70 parked at 50mm (I shot that way often)

My 85 is in, will get put in the field tomorrow most of the day!

First impressions: bigger than I thought, IS is freaking awesome, and AF speed is blazing (similar to 100 f/2, maybe a smidge slower than 70-200 IS II)
