Review Date: Oct 17, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Good performance
Cons:
none

Much better than the 'old' 16-35mm. But be careful! I have to test 4 samples before I had a good one. The other were worse the Mark1.

I had before the 85mm F1.2 Mark1 on a 1DsII. Everything is a little better with this lens.

Review Date: Oct 17, 2007 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 6 

Pros: Build quality, F1.2
Cons:
Price!!!


Immediately after using the first time this lens (which I bought in Holland at KameraExpress) I saw that this isnít what I expected. I have 35L, 85LII and the 135L in combination with the 1DsII.
The lens still even have a lot of CA at f8. I went with the lens to service of Canon. After repairing it was a lot better but still much more CA then all other (zoom) lenses I have, including the cheap Sigma 50mm macro. You can see the CA at F1.2 but also at F8
I thing I have a very sample but after 2 weeks I am still waiting for a solution from the shop.
