Thanks! It's hard to take this lens off. I'm gonna be seeing the world in 85mm for a while now.

My mini-review of this lens.

http://ramonlperez.tumblr.com/post/33253428138/fast-prime-shoot-out-pt-1-85mm-1-2l-ii-mini-review
+1 Nice practical review.  It was a very good idea to compare the lenses with similar framing. That way the DOF difference is obvious.

Amazing lens, but I need something more video-centric.

This lens is FAR too much fun.  Slow focus?  Who cares, the image quality is unbeatable.  I use it in the studio and for low-light portraits all the time.

I haven't seen much on it, but another photog I met using the lens says the focus is faster on his 5D3.
Is this true to anyone else here? I thought this was only the case with the 1DX and certain lenses

I'm currently shooting with 5D III - AF speed is not quite fast. However, this lens produces wonderful photos for me. JPEG straight out from camera, no PP. Only resized.
