Lenses / 85 1.2 Clipped Bokeh
« on: December 09, 2014, 05:56:02 PM »
I just bought an 85 1.2. Can anyone explain to me why the bokeh is clipped off on sides of the discs? My 135L doesn't do that.

From what I have read online it sounds like it is related to the mirror box. But then why don't my other lenses do that? Not sure I like the shape of the bokeh...

After each wedding when I am looking through the images, the 50A shots are in a league of their own. My copy hits more accurately and consistently than my 135L. Love it.

After months of use, I can easily say this is my best lens. It focuses more consistently than my Canon 135 and 85. The color and contrast at 1.4 are incredible. Most of these images were taken with the 50A:

The AF on it is more reliable than any of my L lenses. I am starting to wonder if people made up the AF issues because that was the only possible attack on the lens.

Certainly deserved. My copy has been blowing my mind. Used it at two weddings now and the photos are like nothing I have seen.

Zero issues with it on my 5dmkiii or 6d.

Mine is focusing perfectly. Zero issues.

Best lens I have owned.

50A on a 5Dmkiii @1.4

This lens is far and away my most favorite lens ever! I used the 50A on a family session and an engagement session this weekend and the photos that came back were like nothing I have ever seen. The family had four children ranging from age 1 to 5 who were super high energy. I used single point AF and switched AF points. In our hour session I took 350 shots and I didn't see any that miss focused. For the first time ever, I was able to do a family portrait @ 1.4 and no one near the edge of the frame was soft as when I used my 50L. The bokeh, color, and contrast at 1.4 is breathtaking. I posted a few from the session on my facebook page. The only two lenses used were the 50A and the 35A.


That's too bad. Have you thought about exchanging it? I have done that with Canon 50's before. My Sigma 50 is spot on indoors in low light even when focusing across the room. It is also spot on outside in backlit and high contrast situations.

The bad thing about returning it for you is there might be stock for a while...




This lens is like nothing else I have ever used!!!  5Dmkiii @1.6
