Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

85II
Review Date: Sep 2, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great images, very sharp pictures! The BEST lens Canon makes!
Cons:
A little heavy, but good for me.


As others have stated this lens is legendary!! This lens focuses a little slow but hey it's not a sports lens. This lens is primarily designed for two purposes: portraiture, and low light shooting. This lens excells very nicely on both of my 5d's and never fails to deliver images that are truly legendary!

I would highly recommend this lens if you are a professional DEDICATED to the best equipment available for the Canon mount system. You cannot go wrong with this lens. The lens is full of glass from the rear mount all the way to the massive front element.

I highly recommend this lens if you're serious about your photography.

Pros: Beautiful bokeh, good light and vignette control. Very sharp. A must-have for a serious photographer. If you whip this baby out, you'd better know how to take pictures.
Cons:
Attracts quite a bit of attention (not that that's a bad thing).


This lens is a must-have for any serious photographer. I've had mine for some time and I love the fact that this lens always delivers. Others have stated that they have received a soft copy, but mine is definitely sharp at all focal lengths.

I chose this lens over the 24-105 f4 mainly because I know and appreciate the value of having that additional stop that this lens allows at f2.8 which is twice the light over the f4 model. Even without IS this lens delivers big results. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for. Build quality is superb and will probably last many years to come. When you have this lens on your camera, people know you mean business. It seems to attract attention everywhere it goes.

Some have complained about the weight of the lens, but it feels just right for me. Overall, you can't go wrong with this lens. Rock solid Canon reliability and quality.
