To all 5D III owners,
How do you like the AF speed of Canon 85L II on your 5D III?
I'm thinking adding this lens to my gear.
Thanks everyone for your feedbacks. I heard the AF speed on non-L version is faster. I wonder the sharpness(wide open), color and contrast?
I'm not worry about weather or dust resistance at all.
I would try the sigma 85 1.4 instead.
The 85 1.8 was my first true lens, years ago...but that was before my purchase of a 24-105 and the gorgeous 70-200 2.8. I basically stopped using it.
I recently picked it back up- its a dream to carry, and the AF is super quick. However, the incredible amount of purple and green aberration makes me want to dump it. The 85 1/8 images do not have the awesome, controlled character of other L lenses.
Looking at my last set of portraits with it, i noticed that in post, im fighting against the thin, purplish images it creates. Also, Im finding that I dont like 85mm...My best portrait work is in the 110-200 range. green rings around bokeh circles...yuck.
