Just one question about this lens guys ... mounting this lens on the body gives me the heebie-jeebies given that the rear lens element is right on the mount. Do you find this to give you problems in the field?

None so far.

Same for me - When I first saw the configuration of the len's rear end I was really afraid that I would end up scratching it by accident while mounting it in the field. A few months later I find that with proper care there is very little risk of such thing happening.

No real issues so far, but you do have to use an extra level of care with it. You can't just willy-nilly slap it on there.

I just purchased this lens over the holidays and I can't get enough of it. The auto focus is not as bad as people say if you use it correctly. I have about the same success rate with the 85mm 1.2 as my 35mm 1.4 for sharp pictues of my two year old son who hardly ever stops moving.
