Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

85II
Review Date: May 12, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,650.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: pops the foreground like no lens i've ever seen. beautiful backgrounds, great in low light.
Cons:
steep learning curve, heavy, a little slow, costs a small fortune

I never leave for a session or wedding without this lens. In spite of its cost I would still buy this lens if its price doubled tomorrow. It really is that amazing. It takes practice, don't get me wrong. The depth of field gets real shallow, real fast as you approach f/1.2, but once you've mastered it, you'll wonder how you ever shot a portrait session without this baby. Just buy it.
