ef85mmf_12_1_
Review Date: Mar 30, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,250.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very fast lens, allows shots to be taken when flash woudl be intrusive Allows for creative ultra narrow DOF shots.
Cons:
slow AF not a sports lens. Can be too sharp for your model. Weighty piece of glass.

I used this lens recently at a wedding to grab a few shots in the church.
At ISO 400 and F1.2 the shutter speed was still only 1/50.
Focusing is slow but accurate.

50mmf1.4 is loads lighter, cheeper........but the results from this lens are something special.
