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: A painter's brush ?l! Or a goal, unique like no other

Cons: The weight? Also no you have to figure out the piece of glass you took, slow focus? Also no, you have to understand the weight of these lenses! So no one when it allows you a lens to make masterpieces.

Opinion: I admit that it is having bought and tried it today on the Canon 1 DX I am a bit excited hahahahha , as soon as I put this beast in the camera that balances like cinema and seems made especially for it I find myself in front of a great scene and I shoot 3-4 portraits of different people while they were getting ready to enter the ice rink ? , I immediately look at the camera screen and start to enjoy , right adjective I assure you , I shot at F 1.2 wow . I try to close f2 shot that I looked like a drug addict in withdrawal.... I look at the result that blade , that crazy blur with the Italian ? flag behind it and nothing I fell in love with , I have the 100 f2.8 is not bad but we are light years away , I have the excellent 70-200 f 2.8 is iii fantastic even in portraits and nothing , they are different things .... the sharpness of a lens is one thing, but this lens is an artist's brush another thing especially on flagships, less on the 5D whatever it is ii-iii etc

Pros: Gorgeous blur

Cons: Slow and not always accurate af (on 6D)

Opinion: An amateur canonical photographer (at first by chance, then by habit) since I was a boy, I took the opportunity of a professional friend who discarded the Canon kit and I bought it leaving it stationary for a while. When I had the opportunity to use it (portraits of my children) I was able to appreciate its qualities. I think it should be used mostly at maximum aperture, otherwise it would make no sense to have such an expensive, heavy and cumbersome 85; at f/1.2, however, it is unrivaled, at least among similar lenses I have been able to try. Using it is not always easy (unlike, for example, the 135 f:2), but it is a lens that for me alone justifies the possession and use of a Canon camera body.

Pros: Sharpness, Blur, Character

Cons: Plastic lens hood, autofocus a bit cumbersome at times

Opinion: An exciting lens in no uncertain terms, to which it is difficult to make negative judgments. It's sharp already at TA, decent AF on 6D, it becomes excellent on 1DsMKIII, accurate even in situations of pushed backlight even if sometimes a little slow, excellent construction, apart from the lens hood which is made of plastic but not well made, perhaps a little too thin the mold compared to the size. I don't find any flaws or contraindications to this lens which, although not my favorite lens, is still the one that gives the best results, practically always! Logically, the only application is for the portrait it is also a beautiful object to look at

Pros: Fairytale rendering, colors, detachment of the planes, bokeh

Cons: AF speed, awkward hood like many other lenses of the brand

Opinion: I have owned the lens for some time (purchased at a really ridiculous price thanks to a person impatient to switch to RF). First for exclusive use on a 6d bought on purpose that now with Z I sold and use via EF->Z autofocus adapter. This lens I have always loved and envied to death in Canon, I always hoped that Nikon made an equivalent lens and finally now there is but I remain faithful to this 85mm Canon because its yield can not give me any lens! It's an old project but wow if it works! Every shot at TA and not close to TA always makes you fall in love, it is a pleasure to be able to use it with z7II / z8! The apotheosis I would say! Probably although the native tempts me a lot, I will not give in and keep this lens for portraits. When love is triggered, it is love! Would I buy it again? No, because I certainly don't sell this! :D
