Here is another picture, 1 hour old, from a studentparty. The Depth of field is not too thin @f1.2 and could even be less. No Vignetting after post, tacksharp and >1stop more light. real life you know. Apart from forums. ;) try it.

Terry.
This lens brought me more money than it costs. Add that to the fact that i can still sell it for more than I got it for and you know how many money I "wasted". In fact no one else than Canon got a F1.2 lens with Autofocus to work. For me the difference between f1.2 and f1.8 is very noticeable and you would see it even more if I would correct the picture in the cam or in post, which I honestly didn't do... you search very hard for backdraws, but vignetting is none. Even CAs are none nowadays. The f1.2 look stays. Sorry for that.

I guess it's a bit hard for Nikonusers to always fall behind the Canon Lens Lineup... but don't bother. You also pay $10000 more on a Porsche Turbo for a few more PS to the Turbo "S". Those who are willing to pay know why.

I hope that the engravings on the lens are correct. I like my Samyang 14mm 2.8, it's fantastic for the price but to have infinity at 2m on the lens is not funny on manual lenses. Not with 5 degrees of rotation left...

Electronic Contacts are good to work wide open. Like the niche of IRIX.

TerryTerryTerry,
are you kidding me? First, that's the link I posted above and you should note the difference between f1.2 and f1.8 (it's quite visible). Secondly, vignetting is no problem nowadays, it's gone with every simple rawconverter and even in the body if I turn it on (which I don't do because vigentting is very nice on portraits). I call this a proove that you don't read my texts before you post. That would explain pretty much. The 3rd point is that I also wrote I got my 85L 6 years ago where no Sigma was even available...the 85 Art is out a few months now. And 4th, but not last, I payed less than the Sigma costs. Really. I guess you should *really* read texts before you answer. But as I'm a nice person and have hope on you I got you some examples in 5 minutes... shot Out of Cam, no incam-correction turned on and no sharpening on post. So try to be honest and fair. At least one time, ok? http://tinyurl.com/hrxubt5
(and by the way, it may proove that I at least have one) ;)

My portraits belong to me, but I can't publish other people without their permission. Maybe I'll take you some shots if I get time... don't know why, but maybe to convince you.

You don't have to give other people buying decisions... they can decide by their own. You appear very arrogant while doing it. So spare us. Would you dare to ask Pete Souza why he uses the 85L on Obama? Believe me there is much more on that lens than the fast aperture. I would never trade it for a Sigma. And now the funny thing: I got it for $1100 back in 2009 or 2010 from a friend who switched to PhaseOne, so there is no pricedifference for me.In fact, I would get more money back after 6 years....

Enough said.

I have no GAS. My cam is 4 years old and the lens 6 or 7. I bought it when there was no Sigma Art Lens invented. Even not in sight. Hunting from the Canon to the Sigma would be more reason for GAS. And I would send you portraits but they belong to the customers. At the same time you searched on DXO you could easily look out for portraits on the 85L. You could even find hundreds on the link to "Pixelpeeper" I posted at the very beginning ( already sorted it for you to f1.2 only). The 85L is very sharp in the center and you need no sharpness from corner to corner in portraitbusiness. Most portraits even add a vignette to the scene and CA's are gone with any recent RAWConverter, they don't appear unless you draw high contrast-lines on open apertures.

If you would be a decent guy without prejudice and with a serious way to talk to other people, different to your opinion, I woud show you some pictures. But I see enough on your gallery and your Facebookaccount to know what you're capable of. Doesn't impress me, officer. What would be? I show you something and you would play the same stupid forum-trolling again and again. This thread is already too long. I even thought I send you a picture of a 85L with your name on it for fun. But you have no fun. Your landscapes are good, I admit. In another situation we could be very good fellows in photography, because we do the same pictures after all (b/w landscape, analog, hasselblad, Fuji GX680). Your hate in the Canon85L is really deep isn't it? See you Terry and get over it.

Edit: By the way, the price of a Canon 1.8 is $299. Boom, Nikonian. The funny thing is I'm so stupid that I got the L later than this and never regretted it. Something must be wrong with me. Darn.

Now you are at f1.4? Wow. No more comparision to 1.8? Why not? I guess you've seen that your Nikonlenses have also at higher TStops like every other lense. Let's try it with the Sigma? Muahaha. Let#s see how far you come..

The Sigma 85mm f1.4 ART for Canon has a T-Stop of T1.8 at DXO. You can't even quote properly from other sides. Realize something? Apart from your stupidity it's still f1.2, independent from the T-stops who depend on much more things like lensdesign and glass. You knwo the difference between T-Stops and F-stops?

I could also ask you to post 3 pictures to show me that you need a fullframe instead of an APS-C. The difference would be the same (one stop). For the pictures in your gallery you not even need a DSLR at all. You paid so much Money for your cam, better get yourself a cheap handy. for less money.

Is your desire to a real f1.2 lens so hard? Don't cry Terry Breedhate. If you get better you may be able to afford one someday. Or how did your mother say? Boom. :(

@Terry Breedloov
I gave you a link to hundreds of pictures with f1.2, you didn't care. I told you that you have a two times brighter Viewfinder, you didn't listen. I told you that the bokeh and the colors are different, you didn't recognize. I told you that of course the T-stop is T1.4 but the T-Stop of your f1.8 is also only t2.1. You didn't care. And I'm not blabbering, I try to educate you... but I think you're just too young or too, sorry, dumb to understand what I want to tell you. I would say you're trolling but I rather think you are really resistant to knowledge.

Here is a good starting point for comparing f1.2 to f1.8: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-85mm-f-1.2-L-II-USM-Lens-Review.aspx (the young girl there will help you, but be awared - she's really unsharp). EOF.

*AF* with a f1.2 85mm is not a little difference... it's a immense effort. Guess why there is no other doing it... and I spoke even from a 50mm f1.0 with *AF*

Do you read before you post? I wrote twice that Portraits at f1.2 are not very common. The advantage of an f1.2 lens is not only on thin DOF. Why do people always think that they have to shoot @f1.2 if they own such a lens? I would take the 85L with f2.8 any time over the 85mm f1.8. And no, I won't shoot anything for you... get yourself a book for the basics.

Terry Breedlove.
Do you want to compensate your desire for the 85L? Go on. Of course it's T1.4, a Sigma f1.4 is T1.7. But for you I can repeat the advantages of a 85mm 1.2 because it seems you need some more time to understand things. No problem, I have 2 childs, so I can tell you again. No one (even I) uses f1.2 on the set, but with f1.8 it's stopped down more than a stop and you have a great picture. No vignetting, no CA. Try to use a 85mm f1.8 @wide open and you see the difference. Ok, I don't know if *you* see it, but I do. At the same time the viewfinder is always bright as f1.2, even if you don't use the aperture. More? The colours and the Bokeh are way superiour to all you know of except of lenses with Gausselements.
So I feel very sorry for you that you can't afford it, but I guess you also think a Porsche is a bad car. Get over it.

The value is gone? The price is at the same value as I bought it 5 years ago.. but I guess you know what you write. Could it be that you are really tired of using Olympus and Nikon, where no equal glass exist? Sorry bout that. If you can't make good pictures with a 85L you should learn quite a few lessons. Pete Souza portrayed Obama the last years, but I guess there were only unsharp shots.

I think you just sound kinda jealous. First, there are many lense worse wide open than the 85L because it's sharp even at f1.2 in the center. The 50L isn't nearly as sharp so you don't need to stop down the 85L because it's very useable at this aperture. But even if you maybe got a broken copy you should note that a F1.2 lens is *always* more than a stop brighter in an OVF (+better Autofocus in Low Light) and the colour rendition or the bokeh is very different from other glass.
The only thing which is really not the best wide open are the CAs, but that's a common problem on fast lenses.

By the way you can make your own opinion away from trolling @http://tinyurl.com/htpoceu
