I still believe that the 50/1.2 is overpriced for what it is: I hope to see a new and improved 50/1.2 II and until it arrives I will look for the 50/1.4 II which should appear soon....

On full frame the 50mm can be a bit too short and therefore a bit in your face for the subject to relax.

The 85L MkII though.....

I fully agree and this is the reason for which I look towards the 85/1.2L II : but the only thing that stops me for buying it, is the rumour of a version III of this lens ! .... I cannot manage to find a good advice on a update version of this (already wonderful) 85.1.2

Does some of you have info about it ?

The MkII version of the 85L is already out buddy. The 135L F2 is great as well.

what do you mean by "out" , do you mean available ? (yes I know the version II is available: it is the one I'm interested in)

nounours18200:
I don't think that you will see a ver 3 of the 85L 1.2 as the ver II was released in 2006.  I'm not sure what you would like in a ver 3 of this lens that it already doesn't have/do.  I'd buy it now and enjoy this spectacular lens.  I'm doing just that this week.

My fear was just to buy it and see a new version on the market a few days after... But I congratulate you for buying it this weekend: I will probably  buy it also in the near future....

Have good photos !

I love the 50 and 85 f/1.2 - in certain situations, you just can't get the bokeh and color with any other (canon) lens . . .

I already own the 85/1.8 but will surely get the 85/1.2L II for its short depth of field...
