Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope. Just not worth the high price tag. I shoot weddings and bought into the hype that this lens would produce "dreamy bridal" portraits. Well,it focuses like a grandfather clock. Its almost a 2 second count. Way too slow for anything moving,and at f1.2 ask them to hold their breath as well. Also,its not sharp wide open,at f1.2,its actually not really sharp until f2.2. Why buy an f1.2 lens if it isn't sharp at f1.2...? Very frustrating,disappointing. Shoot still portraits at f2.8 and you may get something OR buy the 85 f1.8 and save 2 grand. For this price,this lens should focus fast and be sharp. Bokeh schmokeh. I sold mine on ebay. This is a common story btw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Just wonderful, used appropriately" "I've recently gone through the process of reviewing fast 85mm primes and decided on the Canon 85/1.2L for a variety of reasons. One buys a very fast lens because the intent is to shoot it wide open most of the time. If you aren't going to shoot wide open, why pay the huge price premium? I've shot this on a 7D, 1D Mk IV and 1Dx and love the lens' sharpness wide open. Like any super fast lens, there is vignetting wide open, but applying the lens profile in Adobe Lightroom negates this perfectly. The lens is slower than the f/1.8 variant to focus. This is due to the focus being done with the razor thin depth of field at f/1.2 and the architecture of the ring USM to prevent the hunting found in lesser glass. The lens is quite heavy and walking around with it on the 1Dx (also a weighty monster) could get fatiguing with the wrong strap. These things said, I compared it to Sigma's quite good 85/1.4 and Zeiss' very sharp 85/1.4 and all things considered, I preferred the Canon and it is now part of my kit."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Lens "This medium telephoto prime from Canon has quickly become a personal favourite. The build quality is superb, and while a rather heavy piece of equipment it feels very balanced on the camera.The fact that it is not too long likely helps with this. The available 1.2 aperture allows extremely shallow DOF with a lovely, dreamy bokeh. A pleasant surprise to me is that the lens is very sharp even wide open. Auto focus is relatively slow ( there is a LOT of glass to be moved ), and so this would not be very suitable for attempts to photograph subjects moving rapidly, especially with unpredictable changes in direction. If one chooses to manual focus, the large amount of light in the viewfinder is very helpful, and the focus ring is finely calibrated, allowing very detailed adjustments. It would be fair to describe this as an ideal ""portrait"" lens. It is outstanding stopped down , but in my opinion is made to be used at large apertures. If that style of shooting is your cup of tea, and if you can justify the hefty price, it is well worth considering."
