i will still buy one...

why do you think the 85 will be behind the 35 II when comparing the set?

I believe the focusing speed and stabiliser will give it the edge over the 1.2 for available light shooters, action and wedding shooters. I'm just not sure it will have the magic look of the 1.2.

waiting for some decent reviews, fingers crossed...

Actually, Canon confirms the 85mm will not match the 35mm in resolution and contrast... honestly it doesn't appear to be close... at all. All that said, it looks pretty favorable against the other 85s.
