clartephoto, more great shots, thanks for sharing. It's nice to have you on CR.The guy in the review can say that his images with the 1.2 are more magical... OK.. thanks. I wonder how one would quantify that. Could it be that when one drops $2,200 on a lens that they feel obligated to feel it is full of magic?Have you used the 1.2? If not, how can you say he's right or wrong?
No I have not used the 1.2. He is the one reviewing, how can he prove himself correct? What does "magical" mean? It is a meaningless statement and therefore completely unhelpful as a "review." It would make a lovely Tweet though...QuoteThe 1.2 lets in more light for sure, I'm not convinced it is sharper, and if focuses slower.I don't mean to be rude but this is one of the least helpful reviews I've ever seen on a reputable camera website.LOL back at you - the old "I don't mean to be rude" preceding the rude statement. Saying that doesn't make it any less rude.
I'm sorry you were offended, perhaps it was rude of someone to call this article a review...
Good thing you can find over 100,000 meaningless statements over on my twitter feed! https://twitter.com/justinvl
And I'm not going to debate about what is and isn't rude, that'll probably lead to how you were raised and it's best not to go there.
Also, 85's are the perfect focal length for a bit of free-lensing!
