Sorry, it was the 50/1.2

I am a minimalist, and would like one lens for this purpose. No, I am not a professional, but do not mind paying for the best. I figure the kids are here once, so there is no time for compromise. My problem is knowing which will give me the most consistent results, as I do not like buying things twice.

I had heard that the 85/1.2 focuses spmwhat slow, but also that it was improved over the original version. I'm more concerned with very the shallow DOF.

This lens, if not asking too much from a single lens, will also be used at indoor show jumping events.

If you have other suggestions than these two lens, please suggest away.
