Great images! I wish I could do that as well.

However, have you ever noticed that the lens has severe chromatic aberration under certain lighting conditions? Please see the attached image. Her face is pretty sharp. I pixelized her face for her privacy.

Yes I've seen it before but in extreme cases. I find that overall CA/purple fringing is pretty much in control with this lens. I can't wait for summer so I can use this lens again.

I have the first generation EF 85mm 1.2L which has some kind of dramatic way of rendering at 1.2. The background is like a painting and the subject sharp. It’s easily one my favourite lenses.

Would the EF 50mm 1.2L bring something extra compared to the Nikon 50mm 1.4G or the classic Planar 1.4/50 ZF.2?
