Pros: Best bokeh: creamy, soft, with large out-of-focus circles, brilliant contrast and colors, very good sharpnes

Cons: Large, heavy and expensive. Electronically driven focus, so you can't adjust the focus when the camera is turned off. Filmsy lenshood, turns while manual focussing the lens, large rear lens element can easily be scratched when mounting the lens, very slow AF for a USM lens.

Opinion: This lens provides brilliant contrast and colors, and very good sharpnes. Even wide open the images are sharp and by f2 the sharpness is very high. Since it is large and heavy and since its AF ist comparatively slow, working with this lens is not always easy but the results are stunning! The lens hood can be easily mounted (clip on) but it is a little thin and flimsy and it rotates with the lens front when used in manual focus mode. The electronically driven focus requires you to connect the lens to a powered camera to be able to change the focus manually (typically when you want to retreat the extended front tube before packing the lens in a bag). The large rear glass element of the lens is unprotected an can be easily scratchen when mounting the lens on the camera.

Pros: Blur, colors, plane separation, f1.2

Cons: I can no longer use other lenses

Opinion: Lens that I loved from the first shot, I really had trouble taking it off the camera. Bokeh and unique colors. On Eos R it was very sharp already at f1.2, on R5 it suffered a little bit from the pixels but perfect already from f2.0. The speed of the af was not a problem, especially in portraiture even in difficult light. The only real drawback is the focus ring, without end of stroke and with a bit of play, from a sense of error.

Pros: Brightness, bokeh, colors, sharpness*

Cons: Speed, sharpness*, hood

Opinion: Pure love optics, a blurred and WOW colors, maybe the RF 1.2 can surpass it. In addition, it is bright and therefore allows you to photograph in extremely dark conditions. The sharpness is very good but not at the levels of 1.4 L IS and Sigma 1.4 Art (if you choose it, you certainly do not think about this). It weighs like any bright 85mm. The hood is slightly large. The dimensions are normal. I wouldn't use it to chase pheasants, that's it!

Pros: Lens to be kept and handed down to posterity

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Lens suitable for those who have something beating in their chest, it is wonderfully imperfect, it is like a Picasso, a Van Gogh, lives on its own "light". If you want to reduce photography to a science then don't buy it, but if you believe that photography is an art..... the Big One is the Holy Grail. Take the first portrait and it will be eternal love

Pros: rendered, knows how to be sharp and poetic, is a lens to have ... small size (no joke)

Cons: Construction under tone for an L, lensing autofocus... heavy, but there is worse

Opinion: The surrender is magical, nothing to say... I had the sigma 1.4 and there is no comparison. The blur is beautiful and even at closed apertures it remains very nice, in particular I noticed that it is more pushed in this at f2.8 than in the full-aperture sigma (and the sigma has never disappointed me, indeed!). The colors returned are beautiful, the rendering in fantastic backlight, the sharpness is excellent even at full aperture and even in the most peripheral areas, closing increases the contrast, a little sharpness (which becomes perfect) and the chromatic aberrations disappear, which in any case are not annoying. Among the pros I also put the size, it is in fact quite short even if cicciotto. Compared to the new RF it is shorter even adding the adapter! The autofous is slow, but precise; the weight is considerable, but not dramatic... The construction is what leaves me a little bitter, the focus ring has a bit of play, not being tropicalized it is easy to find a few grains of dust between the lenses (although they will never be a problem in the photos), the front element moves during focus. The part of the barrel on the bayonet side is covered with rubber, but in a short time (it does not always seem ...) this coating begins to "melt", and will be sticky. To solve this problem there are various solutions, the cheapest (zero cost) is to remove the coating gently and the plastic core will remain, otherwise you order a Chinese spare part without rubber, because with the original spare part the problem will recur.
