Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM

Review Date: Feb 7, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,400.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Wide open it can be downright amazing. Stopped down a few stops it's truly outstanding.
Cons:
Heavier than lead! Slower than a dinosaur.

Back in the day this lens was a must have hunk of glass, especially for portraits. Now looking back at it I'm amazed I can still hold up my arms. Lots of keepers, especially stopped down, and every once in a while an amazing keeper wide open at 1.2!

Pros: Still great after all these years. I look back at all the keepers I got from this lens, especially paired with my original 1D classic, and I'm amazed. Even if I had the money I'm not sure I would buy the Mark II version of this lens. Would I get the incremental value out of buying the newer version? I think not.
Cons:
None that I can think of. Sure, it's not the latest and greatest, but you're not losing much.

A great lens that keeps getting better. Built like a tank and sharp as a tack. Amazing lens.
