I highly suspect, as with what was done with the 120-300 2.8 lens, the same optical formula just repacked in a new body. I have the 85 and it's great, wide open is a little soft and can exhibit purple fringing but it's still better overall compared to say Canon's 50mm 1.4, and stopped down it's just as bloody sharp. I like the colors too, and the AF is quick, and curiously responds more accurately in low light than their 35mm on the 5DIII which to me doesn't make much sense (shouldn't AF technology improve over time even for a different lens?). But I couldn't be happier doing portrait work and travel with the combo of their 35 and 85, but I would be interested in something wider as others have mentioned, a fast 28 or 24 would be awesome if at the usual price range!
