Re: Would you still buy the 85mm f/1.2L II usm?

I've owned all three versions of the 85L and I find the 85/1.4LIS to be the easiest to work with and give consistent results. The AF on the first two versions was spotty at best, especially when used at F1.2-2 at close range. I simply used them in manual focus mode and slowed down a bit in order to get the shot.
