I have the Mark II and would have considered the Mark I, but I wanted the faster focus speed and it is unlikely that there will be a Mark III (with improved focus) for awhile. IMO, the only major thing lacking with this lens is focus speed, and both Marks I and II suck in that department.

Thanks for that link.

Never tried mk1, but in those samples above the bokeh looks way crappy compared to the mk2, which is a big reason for buying it.

You're welcome! He's amazing, right?

Almost all of Lee's public images appear to have been shot with Mark I versions of the 24 f/1.4 L and the 85 f/1.2 L, on a Canon 5D body. For me, that's inspiring because he takes equipment that many of us, including myself, love to complain about, but does absolutely phenomenal work with it. He reminds me that the mind, not the equipment, is the most important piece of equipment. ;-)

maybe the quality of the bokeh is caused by the busy backgrounds, the 1 and 2 actually don't have that big of a difference in image quality/bokeh.

main upgrades are af speed, and flare control, up to the buyer to decide if it's worth the extra money.

..and rounded aperturediaphragm.. i've shot too much with 85 mk2 to just think it's a busy background, that's what i love about the 85, it doesn't show busy background..
