Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

85II
Review Date: Dec 7, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,800.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: f 1.2, bokeh
Cons:
AF all the way. The focus is slow. Focus-by-wire

"focus-by-wire" is complete crap and I hope to never see it again on any other lens. I really do not know what advantage it can provide, but it really makes MF really difficult.

AF is quite slow, not as slow as the cheap 50/1.8II, but pretty close.

That being said, it the nicest lens I've ever worked it. f1.2-1.8 are quite sharp and f2 to f8 are razor sharp. I like the contrast and colors also. Its my favorite lens and is usually on the camera. I don't mind moving to get the picture with this lens.
