85L 1.2 - I am AMAZED - Sample image
Feb 7, 2006

I recieved this beautiful lens today - AMAZING build, feel and it looks soooo cool. I took 3 snaps in the mirror at 1.2 - HOLY S* T! This thing is razor sharp at 1.2 - AMAZING! This lens will stay with me for life, and is worth owning Canon just for this lens. I cant wait to try it at a wedding and for some portraits in my studio. WOW.

Just a sample at F1.2 on a 5D, yes, F1.2! The sharpest lens I have ever owned and much sharper than the $2500 Leica Summilux 50 1.4 -

I posted a self portrait 2 weeks ago with a 5D and D200 - using the 50 1.4's - Yes, I had the same shirt on (no I do not wear this shirt every day, just so happened to be on today) - and the 85 produces so much more detail than my beloved 50 1.4 - If this is what L glass does, Im ready to buy more!

I will be taking some test shots over the next few days and will post them here:
