Braved the heat to snap a few hummers. Kit = 5D III, 600 II + 1.4X III on a Gitzo tripod with RRS full gimbal, exposures - Fill-flash at -1 & 2/3, ISO 2500, f8.

Not only does the camera body make a difference, but personal taste for blur should be taken into account.
For example, Vern's lovely wedding shot above has too much blur for my taste. I'd rather have a little less blur and be able to identify my friends/relatives in their wedding pix. I think photographers may have gotten a bit carried away in seeking maximum blur. Do clients really want that? I think they are more concerned that we don't make them look fat. BTW, I'm not a wedding photographer, so my opinion should not be given a lot of weight. - pun intended
Personally, on my 5D3, I prefer the 85 1.8 for its light weight and speedy autofocus. In my recent side by side test, the images were quite similar. But of course the 85 1.2 can create more blur if you shoot at 1.2.
All I need to do now is find a way to paint a red ring on my 1.8!
