Post your pictures taken with Canon's quintessential portrait lens!

Some examples to start the thread:


EOS 7D, EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM, 1/1250 s, f/1.4, ISO 100


EOS 7D, EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM, 1/1250 s, f/1.6, ISO 100


EOS 5D Mark II, EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM @ 1/60 s, f/1.8, ISO 400

Of course, it can be used for things other than portraits, too...

Been on a 50 1.4 for a year or so with my 5D2 now. Just bought one of these beasts and the novelty of 1.2 hasn't quite worn off yet, hence the aberration. :p
I like these. Reminds me of the Urban Outfitters catalogs.

Can I request for some action shots from this lens? It doesn't have to be fast sports or anything similar, I would just like to see if its possible to shoot moving subjects with this relatively-slow AF'ing lens.

Moving subjects? How about a bird in flight? (full image and 100% crop)


EOS 7D, EF 85mm f/1.2L II, 1/1600 s, f/6.3, ISO 2000

Still, the grackle was pretty far away - the 85L doesn't do very well with close, erratically-moving subjects, even if they're not moving too fast. The body you use makes a difference, too. The 7D will track moving subjects better than the 5DII, even with a comparitively slow lens like the 85L. A 1-series body would do even better.

Very nice capture indeed, not surprised it was with you 7D...the 5DmkII is great for a lot of things, birds in flight I imagine just wouldn't be one of them....
