The 85/1.2LII is a sweet lens, but it's twice the weight and 1.5x the
price of the Zeiss 85/1.4.

So it's for people who want something a step above the 85/1.8 but
find the weight, bulk, and price of the 85/1.2 on the excessive side.

Don't forget the 85/1.2 also has AF, and this will account for a
reasonable price difference, and the Canon has extra elements, more
glass also equals more money.

I can live without AF if there's focus confirmation. The Canon 85/1.2 is a great lens, but the weight, bulk, and price make an 85mm lens that improves on the 85/1.8 an attractive option.
