Lenses / Re: Canon 85L 1.2 vs Sigma 85 1.4... Has anyone tried both?
« on: November 08, 2012, 02:52:43 PM »
I did a wedding with a rented 85 1.2 and bought the Sigma after that. The comparision is easy:
 The 85L has a very nice special look but you have a lot of shrap behause the AF is so slow that your subject is leaving  Deep of Field at 1.2 before the AF finished. You get only really good pics and a lot of scrap nothing in between.

Interesting... A little of movement and the pic is focused in the ears  :S with all the eyes blurry.

Thanks for pointing this out

The Digital Picture review with it mouse over comparison images is really useful. If you look at those subtle differences and decide the Canon is worth 2x the cost, then by all means, go for it.

Personally, I would buy the Sigma AND a nice used 135mm f/2L for the same money.

I already have the 135L, that's part of my dilemma  :-\

Buy the first lens you think about when you wake up in the morning.

Even the Quantity of OOF blur is more with the 85L at the same aperture. e.g.  Compare the tree trunk blur behind the girl with both lenses at f1.4, the 85L melts it so much more... in fact the 85L at F2 has as much subjective blur as the Siggy does at F1.4... this is where the 85 L shines. I don't know of many lenses that can melt away the background like the 85L....  but you Pay for it  :)

+ 1  I already have noticed that.

First let me address your question with this. You may have already decided you want the LII, am i right? Saying you don't have piles of cash after asking which one is best is asking for permission isn't it? :D
LOL  ;D

"Bosman told me to buy it"  ::)

Maybe my doubt is the focus speed, and that the 135L is kind of similar

if you are using a 1Dmk4 or 1Dx or 1Dsmk3 and have piles of cash get the canon 85 f1.2L II from F1.2 to F2 its sharper than the sigma

if you are using 5D series or lower with AFMA capability get the sigma 85 f1.4 from f2 onward i feel its sharper than the canon L its AF is significantly faster on non 1D bodies it doesnt have focus by wire
and its 2.5 times cheaper

Why on a 1D camera one lens is sharper and on a 5D is the opposite?

what body are you going to use it on
this is the most critical fator asside from the fact the canon f1.2 is 2.5 times more expensive than the sigma 85

if you are using a 1Dmk4 or 1Dx or 1Dsmk3 and have piles of cash get the canon 85 f1.2L II from F1.2 to F2 its sharper than the sigma

if you are using 5D series or lower with AFMA capability get the sigma 85 f1.4 from f2 onward i feel its sharper than the canon L its AF is significantly faster on non 1D bodies it doesnt have focus by wire
and its 2.5 times cheaper

if you have a body without AFMA then you probably cant afford the canon 85 f1.2 so get the canon 85 f1.8

I have a 5D mkIII and dont have piles of cash  :o

Lenses / Canon 85L 1.2 vs Sigma 85 1.4... Has anyone tried both?

Hi Everybody!

I just sell my 24-70L and get a 35L, I love the new lens :D but I'm missing a fast prime between 35L and 135L...

Sigma 85 1.4 have stellar reviews, fast focus, excellent IQ... and the canon 85L... well, its the 85L  :), the only issues are price and focus speed (maybe weight, but I really don't mind that).

Has anyone tried both? 

The canon focus is really that slow?

How those lenses focus in the dark?

I already have searched a lot of reviews, but I want some experiences from people of this forum :D

Well, I did it...  :)

Sold my 24-70 for 1400 dlls, 200 more than the 1200 I paid 2 years ago when I bought it new...

Just shoot a Halloween party last weekend, I love the sharpness and bokeh, and shooting at iso 1600 in an almost dark house with bounce flash, I think I will love this 35L just as much my 135L  :D

I'm tempted to add a 85 to fill the gap

Sigma's looks promising, canon one is tempting too...

Thanks everyone for answer  :)

I'm not a pro shooter, photography is my hobby and its beginning to pay itself, I already have shoot a few weddings, but some of my "wedding heroes" photographers have a special feeling in their images, and I have noticed that they use mainly primes.

That is what I'm aiming for  :)

I hope you also sent the lens.  Its very easy to decenter the elements in a lens, a common issue.  Probably a fairly good chance that it happened.  You should check once you get the body back.

I haven't, Did some quick test and the lest is fine, however when the camera arrives will test it again.

UPDATE:
Repair status: Repair in progress

EOS Bodies / One friend want to Buy my 24-70L... but...
« on: October 24, 2012, 03:50:47 PM »
Hi Everyone!

Background: I have 17-40L, 24-70L, 135L and 70-300L, yesterday pulled the trigger with the 35L... so its on the way...

BUT... yesterday a friend of mine wants to buy me my 24-70L... I am tempted, it will be another step into the "all prime lens" way.  I'm tempted to save for the 85L... honestly the 24-70 is a nice lens, but it don't have WOW factor that the 135L have.

Its something that I want to do... sell it... but first I really wanted to "Try" a wedding or an event with only primes, so Im kind of nervous to sell it and later miss it... for the moment will be 35L - 135L, and 17-40 for the wide shots...

Someone has done this exchange?  ???

UPDATE:

The Puppy (5D mkIII) has arrived and received in Canon Factory Service Center in Irvine, Ca. "Repair Status: Submitted"

besides the dust, I pointed out that the grip was coming off near the shutter... It never happened in my 7D (2.5 years of heavy use)
