Have we discussed buying it used? New it is $2100ish, $1800ish if you go through Canon price watch, but used you can get it for around $1500 or $1600 which is a serious bargain.
That's my plan. You're right - some killer deals out there for good used 85 1.2L II's
Here is one from the Zeiss Makro-Planar 50mm f/2 that I am currently reviewing:

Just these "poor man's workhorses" do fine in the bokeh department, IMO ...
1) 100 2.8 MACRO non-IS @ f/4.0
2) 70-200 4.0 L non-IS @ 200mm, f/8.0, near MFD
Do any of y'all shoot the 85 L in a studio setting with a solid color background. Other than the blurring of the nose and face, it seems like it would be a waste.
