Regarding IQ ... compared to the 1.4 ... the new 85 was a tad less contrast, but MUCH less purple fringe (yay).

Is this also the case having the EF f/1.4 L  stopped down at f/2.0 or f/2.2?

The Macro's a far easier lens to live with. So light, it's a joy to juggle in a day's shooting.

Compared to the old 1.8 ... well, there's no much comparison really. The new lens is in a different league optically, but lacks the old USM's lens whip-snap AF
