Good, we have a bunch of volunteers ready to take a risk for the team.

Definitely considering it. Iíd like a smaller lens than my gargantuan but awesome sigma art 85 f1.4 especially when Iím flying to a shoot and weight/size is at a premium. Also am not thrilled by the sigmaís af accuracy when shooting wide open

Who do I have to bribe in order to get it now? Would love to get a few weddings done with it this year but I am afraid it might have to wait

I own the Sigma 85mm Art, and I don't like IS on lenses shorter than 150mm, so I'm not interested.

very first impressions: fast focussing lens, and accurate. Also on outer points. Sharper at 1.4 than my Tamron 1.8. Build quality is 35 II-ish. Short lens hood. Not a lightweight but nicely balanced. More shooting tomorrow

Ordinarily this would be a no-brainer, but as it happens the lens has tough competition to beat. I would want to see it have equivalent image quality as the Sigma 85A but with faster/better AF.

Just had a quick glance at the sample gallery of images from the 85 IS on DPR. Not really that impressed with what was posted. Maybe DPR just can't take good sample pics. In all seriousness, I still need to see some reviews and more samples with the 85 IS before I'm tempted from my 85L II.

Dealer called yesterday to say itís in. CR also says itís being released in some places.

Perhaps because the European HQ of Canon is located in the Netherlands we get goodies quick (when the 35 II was released I was one of the first to get one too)

Shooting it today to check how it performs but I can already tell the AF speed (and probably accuracy) totally smokes the 1.2 version.

I'd like to see how this compares with the Sigma 85 Art lens.

It blows it away in terms of beauty.

That 85 Art is fugly as.

Did a wide open shootout vs the Tamron (tripod, live view focus, default LR preset although no correction profile for Canon yet of course). Canon is winning here at least. And outer AF points (an issue with some sigma's) work great.

For my use this is the best 85 option for Canon as of now

Just curious about your statement. What negatives do you see with having IS on lenses below 150? Not a criticism, Iím genuinely interested. For my use, having IS is always a huge plus when I canít shoot with a tripod in lower light. If the model isnít moving, this 85IS allows sharp images at 1/5th of a second. Whatís not to like about that?

My interest is growing. Maybe I'll have one when my California kids get here at Christmas.

It looks like the Canon is showing more fringing than the Tammy.

It seems to do. I checked and itís easily removed with a manual correction of setting the amount slider to 1 in LR but it does seem the canon is not as CA free. However the very visible sharpness improvement over the tamron and particular way better AF (this 85 is more on par with the 35 II) have led me to put up my Tammy for sale
