Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM

Review Date: Jan 3, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,400.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Excellent image quality: razorsharp, beautiful background-blur.
Relatively slow autofocus. Akward Electronic Manual Focus. Expensive.

I bought this lens for available light shooting at indoor events (theatres, churches). It's amazing. Excellent image quality. Beautiful bokeh.

I find the Electronic Manual Focussing akward to use but that may just be me. Wide open the lens requires extremely careful focussing: depth of field is paperthin at f1.2 and shorter distances. Autofocus is relatively slow but that hasn't bodered me much. Just don't bring it to shoot a basketbal game.
