Lenses / Re: Should I go for the 85mm F1.2L II USM ?
« on: January 12, 2014, 02:01:19 PM »
50 1.2 is a cracker of a lens too,hell if i had the money i would have all the red rings lol

Heck yeah!  But of the fast primes 24L-135L, my favorites are the 50L and the 85L by far... For what I do, 24L is too wide, 35L bokeh not as good, and 135L could benefit from IS + focal length a bit long.

While some think the 50L/85L are too close in focal length to own both, I beg to differ! :)
i hope my next prime is the 300 2.8 going to take it out for some street photography when i get it lol :P

I never said it was the fastest,but this is the portrait lens and it does that very well IMO it produces photos that no other lens can,its a specialty lens if i want fast focus i have the 70-200 mk2 which is fast but i have had no issues with the 851.2 :).
My advice rent it and use it for a week :)

Renting is a good idea, only reason I brought up focusing speed is that the OP specifically mentioned it as a concern.  While the 85L is *the* portrait lens, the 50L also has spectacular bokeh especially for its focal length and offers versatility and focusing speed the 85L cannot.

The 50L is not quite as sharp as the 85L, but like the 85L it can make ordinary things look extraordinary:

(50L @ f/1.2)

Get it you will not be disappointed!Focus is only slow from MFD to infinity and i personally do not think its slow for what i use it for.


I do not want to take away from the 85L as it is a superlative lens, but it is the slowest focusing L lens I know of under 200mm.

If one is willing to give up a bit of sharpness for focusing speed, versatility, and less bulk/weight - the 50L may be a better choice.

If you are using the lens for events or anything that requires quick focus or tight quarters, the 50L is better. For straight portrait work where you have control over the target the 85L is better.

Here is a video made by photographer TIM NOSENZO comparing focusing speed of the 50L to the 85L:
http://www.timnosenzophoto.com/Other/Gear/n-nH5fW/i-h6q5tnG/A
The 50L is not quite, but almost twice as fast compared to the 85L in focusing speed.

It is actually great to own both, really a question of the specific application which one would use more.

I never said it was the fastest,but this is the portrait lens and it does that very well IMO it produces photos that no other lens can,its a specialty lens if i want fast focus i have the 70-200 mk2 which is fast but i have had no issues with the 851.2 :).
