Pros: This lens has a wonderful feel at hand. The image quality on the 1Ds III is spectacular. Bokeh works magic on images
Cons:
Would we all wish this quality costs less.

I have only clicked a few hundred images during the last three days. I can say that this lens meets or exceeds my expectations. With the extreme depth of field limitations at full 2.0 it will take some practice to get everything right. When my brain connects with this system it is hard to imaging anything better.
With the DOF sensitivity I am sure we will hear about focusing problems. This lens is much more critical that even the 85 f1.2. The DOF is about 1/6 the depth of the 85. Works great but get some practice. LOVE it. I have lusted after a friend's Nikon 200 f2.0 for some time. Glad to compete now.
