The 85 1.2L II is heavy and slow, but it is just soooo good. HereĀ“s an example (BTW, this is straight out of the camera, raw to jpg through Lightroom);
By the way, there is one fault (that I know of) in this image. What is it?

Dear friend , Mr. Eldar.
Ha, Ha, Ha, " By the way, there is one fault (that I know of) in this image. What is it? "
The Label at the Scarf that let my eyes point to the label first.( Right ?---But not Fault, Just forget to adjust the location of them)
BUT You take the most beautiful Portrait Picture of the Most Beautiful Lady.
Thank you , Sir , to show Us.

Easy question. For general people photography (and versatility) 85mm 1.2 L. My favourte lens and probably reason number one for me to own Canon. I actually bought the 5d mark iii to go with this lens.

85 1.2 is the best lens I ever used.
Focus is fast enough for everything I ever needed.
Never failed me.
When shooting pictures of kids you do not have to run around like an idiot after the kids, trying to focus while you are both on the move.
You have to anticipate,...Cartier Bresson style.
I got a young daughter that never sits still,....I use the 85 for 85% of the time.
My favorite lens of all time.
The 135 is also excellent and amazing at less then half the price.

Whoever named the Trinity 35 f1.4, 85 f1.2, 135 f2 was no dumb person.
That is perfection,....The only thing missing 100 f2.8 L Macro.

I would replace the 135f2 with the 70-200 2.8L IS II, but otherwise a golden rule, yes ;)

I personally adore my Magic Drainpipe (80-200L 2.8), but just because I think the 70-200 is way overpriced for me (not overall, but to the old 80-200). The newer one is of course better in nearly every aspect (except of the white color, I don't like white lenses, they are too obtrusive), but the colorrendition of the old one is fabulous.

I just have to add, that with a longer focal range like a 80-200 @f2.8 you can sometimes do much more prettier portraits than with the 85 1.2. Mostly you have to stop down to 2.8 for getting an usable DOF... an with a longer lense the background goes even blurrier than with the shorter focal range.

Dear Lamora.
Yes,  most of PROFESSIONAL wedding/ Portrait Photographers around the world use this  Monster Lens 85 F/ 1.2 MK II. Yes, When I carry this Lens, Some of Photographers around me, come to ask and to see the Photos by this Awesome Lens. Yes It Monster Lens and So heavy that might be a part of slow Auto focus too----Hopefully next 2 years, Canon might give us MK III with Super Fast Auto-Focus and F = 1.0  and only $ 10,000 US. Dollars--Ha, Ha, Ha---Just Dreaming.
Here are my 85 mm F= 1.2 MK II  Photos with  my  trustfully  Old Canon 1DS MK I. (  some one might ask me why I use 12 years old ( 2002)  1DS Camera---Well, That Super fast AF ( one spot Focus) than my 3 Canon DSLR)
Enjoy.

Thank you, Sir, Dear Teacher Mr. CarlTN.
I am very Lucky that, My 1DS still in great shape, and I love her Multi-spots meter, that I can put many spot meter( up to 8 spot meter) in one Photos. That might be  This Canon , could create Black = Black, White = White, and  Gray = Great gray too.
Have a great Night, Sir.

No problem, and I am not a teacher (perhaps you meant that sarcastically, in which case I don't blame you at all!)  You seem like you're closer to being a teacher than I am.  I'm sure your 1DS has good metering options.  Again, nice results!

The 135mm looks great but the focal length forces you to compress the image to the point that it it doesn't have the same 3D look that the 85mm can have.

Good point, but I still feel best of all would be a 90 or 100mm f/1.2, or f/1.0...85mm forces you to get a bit too close, and yet the perspective feels neither close nor far...it's just kind of there.

Hmm, If you attach a Kenko 1.7x Teleconverter to the 85L you'll get a 145mm f2. So why another expensive lense? ;)
