To those of you who have both (or experience using both), how do you feel they compare in terms of image quality (sharpness, rendering, 3D pop)? I know these are two different focal lengths we are talking about, but I am mostly interested in how their outputs compare.

Ive rented both and while both are quite good, they are overpriced IMO. I would get both the EF 50 f/1.2 and 85 f/1.2 used for less than even one of the RF lenses.

For the quality of the 2 new primes I think the price is very reasonable in my opinion but I realise that’s subjective and everyone’s budgets are different. From a professional  standpoint the cost was easy to justify, as was the 28-70 and the 70-200.

i didn’t even consider the older 2 lenses you mentioned as they aren’t in the same league as the new lenses, they are soft wide open, the af speed is pedestrian compared to the 2 new ones and they are old designs and were in dire need of an update.
