Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

85II
Review Date: Apr 23, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Artistic control of DOF is amazing, Clarity of image.
Cons:
Autofocus slow in comparison with what you may be used to.

This lens is a liberation. Ever since I moved to digital I have had to work very hard to get the subjects isolated in a picture - it seemed that it was easier with film. However this lens is just lovely, you can play with DOF and really see the results. At its closest focus distance with the Aperture at 1.8, you get just over 1cm of focus with fantastic blur.

This effect just makes you wish all your lenses were capable of the same DOF control. This is a fantastic lens and the one I am most pleased about.
