We’ve received word from various retailers that the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM has started shipping today or tomorrow.

Demand is pretty high at the moment, and the first shipment may not cover all the preorders from the big retailers. However, if we hear of any in stock at smaller retailers, we’ll let you know.

I woke up to my card being charged for the lens. Called Adorama and they confirmed mine is shipping from their warehouse this afternoon.

Can't wait to see the photos and read the reviews. Thinking about having a garage sale to raise money if this turns out to be a good'un!  :D
I can't list my gear. I'm too ashamed. Everything I have is crippled and obsolete.

Hopefully this means a 135mm f/1.8 or f/2 with IS will be announced. Hurry up and take my money Canon!
My photography equipment goes here, apparently.

I cancelled my Amazon pre-order this afternoon and bought one at a store in Seattle instead.

  • Would you take advice from a cartoons stuffed toy?
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Congrats on your new purchase!

Do you have the 85/1.2 L II? I am most curious to know how it compares. Sharpness doesn't really interest me much, I'm more interested in the rendering, how the bokeh looks, does it have that "magic"? Sorry I know that's an awful word but I think that's how many of us feel about the 1.2 and I am hoping the 1.4 has it too (with the AF and IS etc etc).

Brian already has a hands on review up.

A sketchy review. He had access during some kind of event, but very qualitative comments. Mentions he will do more when he actually purchases the lens.
