The last link is particularly interesting, because in retrospect, after Canon's announcement of BR element technology for the 35/1.4L II, that last bullet point in the patent from 2011 (filing date!) now actually means something. Canon was working on using BR tech and actually hinted at it for at least four years before putting it into production.rs said:http://www.canonrumors.com/a-new-85l-is-on-the-way-cr2/PA_phoxerballzz said:There are currently no rumors for the 85 1.2 III.

I absolutely love my 85L II. Amazing lens, amazing rendering and it has something magical about it which my newer design L's lack. Optically, BR would be about the only change I would wish for. However, some of its physical attributes - minimal weather sealing, focus by wire, slow AF, low magnification and lens hood attached to the focus ring won't be missed by me.chromophore said:[list type=decimal]
[*]Reduced secondary spectrum (axial chromatic aberration)
[*]Reduced comatic aberrations
[*]Weather sealing at the flange
[*]Possible redesign to be internal focusing
[*]Mechanical manual focus as opposed to focus-by-wire
[*]Improved AF speed
Haha! Well worth sending it back four times to get it properly calibrated. It's unbelievably accurate.kaihp said:
