I was thinking about buying that lens instead of the 1.2 version. I ended up getting the 1.2 version an after seeing your images I wonder if I should have saved me about

$800.00 and just got that lens. It is faster to focus lighter to carry around it is not 1.2 but i may be able to live without it. I may have to get one then run it through some tests and sell the one I consider the "loser". The 1.8 version seems a lot like Nikons 85 1.4, small light and quick to focus.
Great shots buy the way.

Nah id take the 85mm f1.2 L over my 1.8 any day

im having the same problem deciding on the 50mm L 1.2 and 1.4 now

im going for the L, if your serious about photography, you will use that extra stop and it will be invaluable when you need it
