Re: Canon 85mm 1.2 vs Zeiss 100mm F2

I used the Zeiss 100 2.0 on my son starting the day after he was born 6 1/2 months ago. Great on a sleeping or calm baby, difficult on an active child at close distances. Lots of missed shots and I use the 50 1.2 more often for the fast focus. Really great shots from both. B&W near macro with the Zeiss are special. The 50 1.2 focuses much faster than the 85 1.2. I would suggest the Zeiss and a fast 50. -E-
