I have the mark ii. My copy is really sharp. It is the sharpest lens in my collection. At 1.2, it's sharper than my 24-70/2.8L ii at 70/2.8.

I like the bright background from this lens. You can easily see the difference than any other lenses for the bright bokeh. For dim background, the difference is not so much obvious comparing to Sigma 85A.
