[quote author=Axilrod link=topic=2923.msg61397#msg61397 My 85L sits on the shelf a little more than I'd like, but I can't bring myself to get rid of it, it's unbelievably sharp even wide open. But I use my 50L more than all my other lenses I'd say, it's super versatile and a lot of fun.
I use my 50L a lot, recently I got an 85mm Sigma and I really love it, it has great IQ and bokeh but it doesn't get used as much as any of my other lenses (maybe neck and neck with my 100mm 2.8L macro), which makes me glad I plumper for the Sigma over the 85LII.
I've heard great things about the Sigma as well, no sense spending $1800-$2000 on a lens you're not going to use that much. For me the 85L is almost a work of art and I know whenever I do use it it's guaranteed to produce some awesome results.
