Never regretted it. On the contrary:

I also own the 70-200 F4 IS. Although this is an incredible lense, I discovered after my vacation that I used the 50 1.2 about 80% of the time.

Ok, me is me, and you are you, but if you ask me (and you did), I wouldn't doubt for a second. 60% of the price of a 85 1.2. Great on a crop (my 30D). Must be even greater on a FF (ask joe mama).

And yes: Focus will be an issue. It's like brilliant music. First you think: "Huh?". Then you think: "Mmmmmh...", then you think: "Wow. Gimme more.".

Kind regards,

Jan Willem
