Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 L II USM Lens

 

The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 L II USM Lens is the widest aperture lens Canon currently makes (review update: the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM Lens now shares this aperture)- allowing handholding and action stopping in the darkest conditions.The background blur...

A Benz of a lens

 

Tack sharp with the right focus.

Price, but you get what you pay for.

canon 85mm f/1.2

 

I use this lens for portraits and it is crisp and clear. I also use this lens for indoor sports, where flash is not allowed and at iso 400-800 i get shutter speeds of 500 plus.

Great for low light! Sharp all the way through. Quick focus. If you want a short telephoto for indoor shooting with no flash - this is your lens!!! No regrets…

Use with full frame only

 

I have owned the lens for just over 9 months now and overall I am pleased with the perfomance. I use an EOS 1D Mark III camera which effectively increases the lens from 85mm to 110 mm. That is probably too much for most portrait work and so tends not...
