Really impressed with Canon's 85mm 1.2L... (3 images)
Nov 18, 2012

For the last 3 years I have tried my best shooting with a Mark I 24-70mm 2.8L and I have to say 85% of the time I was never happy with the images..  So I sold it, and an old 40D body, a 100mm Macro lens and worked some Overtime to get me this lens, and boy does it impress me!

I had read in reviews that it's a specialized lens and one that can be tricky to shoot at F1.2, with the narrow depth of field and all, but my first impressions of it wide open have been extremely good!  Perhaps it's the 5D3's focus system that helps it shine wide open??  Anyways, happy camper here..  All 3 shot's are at F1.2..
