The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Sharpness, blur, speed, stabilizer, weight, bulk, hood, construction and so on.
Opinion:As I wrote above it has an excellent sharpness already at TA (otherwise I would have taken an f2.8), at f2 great for group photos. The blur is not as magical as the 1.2 but it is very creamy cmq, more than the sigma 85 f1.4 Art. It's really very fast, more than the big brother 1,2. It has the stabilizer so it makes it the best in class. It weighs less than all the other 85mm bright so it is an advantage. The dimensions (including hood) are the best I have tried and the weight is well distributed. The hood is small and solid, not like the other 85mm in circulation. It is built very well and the robustness is felt in the hand, already at the first touch. The price of the new is slightly high and the used is hard to find, the only cons..
Opinion:DEFINITIVE. At least for those who still use Canon SLRs this is the ultimate lens. It has an AF module exceptional for precision and speed, usable for portraits but also for sports in low light, in the evening or in indoor arenas. Coupled with a reflex with good grip as a 5D is well balanced and you do not feel at all the 950g of weight (I had to read them otherwise I thought they were around 800, well done Canon. The stabilizer is great and really allows you to take shots that go beyond portraiture, for example in landscaping. I can still use filters shared with my 16-35 f/4 L IS given the 77mm thread. From the point of view of portraits the sharpness is right, there is no excessive macro contrast typical of macro lenses and the blur is quite creamy. It resists well even in backlight. You can look in my gallery some sample photos. Perhaps it is less "poetic" than the backlight of the big brother EF L f / 1.2 but to this I preferred AF more performance and IS that for my way of photographing I considered more important. On mirrorless I do not know if they combine IBIS + IS to give something more but I believe that the EF-RF adapter ring mixed with the more compact handle can lead to greater imbalance and less ergonomics. I will do tests.
Pros:Fast and secure AF, good (great) sharpness, Very good even at 1.4.
Cons:As always I evaluate well before the purchase, nothing to report based on the use I make of it
Opinion:Crossroads: EF 50 L f1.2 or EF 85 L f.14 IS? I opted for the second one not making portraits and because the IS, no longer having the "granite" hand of the past and photographing mainly freehand, is something that helps me a lot. I see that some write about the important weight, true but the lens balances well with the series 5 and 1. The AF is fast and accurate, the colors in line with the other L optics I have, the IS allows you to safely descend with the times. In short, "the air of the Canon house" is all there. Often in the bag I only have the 35 and this 85. For me, great lens.
Opinion:I was undecided between the big-one 1.2 and he, in the end, preferred it, to be a younger, lighter, sharper lens (although in the portrait sharpness is a subjective element), stabilized and more versatile, since I do not use it only in the studio. The thing that immediately popped into my eyes are its full-bodied colors, sharpness and even a bokeh no more than 1.2, but very nice too.
Pros:Autofocus from F1, unimpeachable stabilization, sharpness and superb chromatic rendering.
Cons:Without a shadow of a doubt "the weight".
Opinion:I was looking for the WOW (82 f. 1/2 II) then I said, "I'll settle for budget," but it was the big brother's cost. When I shoot "he" is always my first choice and I struggle to disassemble it... except for the need of shooting spaces. Outstanding performance and excellent sharpness. The boken then fiuuuuuuu. Of course using it with the R tends to be unbalanced, while with the 5Dsr it finds its natural location (megapixel and 85 f. 1/4 that I tell you to do). One of my best purchases and indispensable tool for a portraitist.
