Looks good. Can't wait to see some sample images.

Actually it's quite slow on a 5dmk3 body also. Super lens on a 1dx body, which focuses (drives the 85/1.2 II Ultra Sonic Motor) much faster because of the 11.1v battery compared to 5d's 7.2volt battery. I did some really simple focussing on some stuff when i received my 1dx and in my test setup (switching between targets at near and far distant) it was like 1.3 seconds on 1dx compared to 2 seconds on 5dmk3.
Great lens anyway!
This is the key also having it on a 1d body makes a big difference. As for lens changes during an event just don't do it
Typically I'll leave my 85 on one body and have either the 16-35 or 35 1.4 on another body depends on what is needed but generally I find indoor or night event 2 ff bodies with an 85 on one and 35 1.4 on the other a killer combo
Fortunately it is the same opinion as many others - including Canon
I'm putting money on the 7DII not having one.
Another user here that is firmly in the camp of don't put a pop-up flash on my camera. Even for fill there are better alternatives.
There is no alternative if you don't have one with you.
Why the heck does the darn little flash hurt you guys so much? It won't break if you don;t use it. The fact you are worried about breaking almost hints that they you think you might find a use for it at times. And how does it break more easily than an external flash? If it breaks and you didn't want it anyway, who cares?
And NO it doesn't make you look like a cool, real pro to have no pop-up.
I don't like the subscription model with no access to the adobe-files beyond end of payment. So I choose "never will" because that's what I do and what the company that I am working for will do too. We will look into other programs.
The advantage of posting an image for critique on the Internets Tubes forum is that anyone can give their opinion on the quality of the image.

Getting critique from strangers about whom you know little about is of questionable value to me.
I would much rather get critique from people I personally know have experience, knowledge, and ability that goes beyond a post count on some internet forum.
I still don't see wedding photographers using more than entry level camera bodies, I've certainly never seen a 1D.
