Re: 85 mm lens

I've one owned the 70-200 2.8 IS II, I wouldnt see a need for a 85 prime.. even though its 1 1/3 slower than the prime.. it is more versatile and delivers STUNNING results.. I own the lens.. its great...

As for the OPs question.. why not save some cash after spending all that money on a new camera and go with the Canon 85 1.8? It delivers high quality images, is quick, has a silent motor and is much smaller, lighter and cheaper than the 1.2L and the sigma... plus sometimes with sigma lenses, it may take some calibrating and/or a few copies before you get the results you are looking for.
