Canon EF 85mm/1.2, Mark I vs Mark II

Here's a question I haven't seen discussed much. The EF 85mm/1.2 II is pretty common and in use by a lot of portrait photographers. Much has been said about it. But is there anyone out there using the Mark I? Can anyone speak to the extent to which there is a difference between the two? I understand the autofocus in the Mark II is supposed to be faster (although it is not so fast itself), but is there any other appreciable difference between these two lenses?
