You really are on a nonsensical crusade against the 85mm f1.8 USM, are you not? Lets look at the facts:

You get two totally different lenses. Both very sharp, both with different qualities

believe charts all you want ...

lets leave it at this, I have the 100mm L and except for my 70-200 f2.8L for action or dynamic framing situations, the 100L gets the call - I don't want to waste time with an 85 on my camera when I have a great 100L and a fine 50 f1.4 and a nice 60 macro.

An updated 50 could get me to move.

A sigma art 50 or 85 could get me to move

but of all the lenses I've had, the 100L is my favorite and will not be replaced nor share time with a 85 f1.8
