The 85 f/1.8 is not even close to the 85L
Try these on a 85 f/1.8 :
Clartephoto these are really nice
Unique look and that blur.... Simply amazing
Now I really want one
Hi all, I'm here again with a buy question: lots of online reviews state that the 85mm f1.8 is nearly identical to the f1.2 II in terms of image quality when stopped down to f2. It even focuses faster than the L version. All that the f1.2 version has going for it seems to be that it is very sharp wide open, and has slightly better sharpness and contract than the f1.8 version. Again, money is not an issue here. Is the f1.2 II worth my money with nearly identical visuals and even slower focus, to be offset with f1.2 for low light conditions? Let me know your real-world thoughts! Thanks!
dash2k8 you should get 1.2L version You said money is not an issue.
Don't want to spend money , rent 1.2L before you purchase to make your decision more firm
