Waiting to hear if the AF is fast. If so, I will order one up. If it is slow like the 1.2, I guess I live with the 1.8 for another 15 years. *sigh*

I am interested but will probably wait for a price drop. A week after I bought my 100-400II the price went down.(No regrets about the purchase, I use it a lot.)

If you had bought from B&H you could have probably gotten the difference refunded as the lens was within the return frame.....just saying.

It's going to be a fast focusing lens, I think. The video I saw touted it as a good lens for lowlight events including sports, which implies that the focus will be fast. If it's as good as it might be, it will sit well in the Canon lineup leaving the 1.2 as the bokeh-master lens that it is.

I'm passing. My 85L II is more than fine for what I use it for. The slower focusing is not a concern. In addition, my copy of the 85L II is very sharp at all apertures including wide open.

If you have time to run this through Google Translate: http://cweb.canon.jp/ef/info/ef85-f14-usm/interview.html I think you'll find the answer about whether or not it focuses quickly. Maybe it will be a question of how quickly, but by the sounds of it, it should be fast. IS is also rated to 4 stops.

I have the 85/1.2L (v1), which I like a lot. But I would like a faster focusing 85 in a similar class to the 135L. While the 85/1.2 does OK in good light, it seems to bog down in poorly lit wedding receptions, etc. I'm hoping the 85/1.4 will manage better. I'm also hoping it's a bit sharper off-center at wide aperture values.

I'm willing to be the new 85 1.4L is going to be a blockbuster hit: Fast AF, great w/o resolution, and all things considered a compelling price.

I am leaning toward picking one up ... but, will wait until I better understand how it compares to the 85 Art. I own the 85A and have been happy with it, but the IS has me interested in the Canon. I would also like to better understand it's performance on my 5DSR before ordering it.

ok, pre-order placed. There's an event beginning of November where CPS also is; I'm sure they'll bring that 85 and I can give it a go. If I don't like it, I can always cancel

No way I preorder as yet to be seen gear. 99% certain it's will be great but I won't take risk.

That's always a wise thing to do. Unfortunately I never take wise decisions when I suffer from GAS

(being able to play with one at an event prior will sweeten things a bit though)

Looks good and the price is reasonable. I'll probably get it but I don't have enough GAS to preorder it. Most of my usage of it would be after Christmas anyways so I can wait.

Count me in after I see the first reviews. Can you imagine taking sharp portraits in low light at 1/10 second? Or even 1/5 second if your subject is very still? I love image stabilization and having it on a f1.4 will be amazing.

It's the first time in a while when a new Canon lens is intriguing me more than a third party equivalent. However, even if I do decide to set my sights on it in the end, it'll be quite a while before I am able to afford it.

I'm very interested in this one. I do love my old Zeiss 75/1.5 Biotar, when I have time for manual focus, but I really would love a modern, razor-sharp, fast 85 with IS. I thought about pushing the button for pre-order, since I have to believe the optical performance of this one will be superb, but I'll wait a little while after release to confirm.

I'm waiting to see the tests, price to drop, and for me to decide whether I prefer my 100mm macro IS to it for my lighter-than-70-200 prime tele.
