Let's post photos taken with the 85L (version 1 or version 2) at f/1.2 ONLY

When I was deciding between the Canon 85mm L vs. the f/1.8 Version, my highest concern was: "will my shots be usable at f/1.2."

Now that I have an 85LII, I'm curious to see other shots people have taken at f/1.2.

So here's mine:

I only bought this lens a few weeks ago, so not too much to offer just yet. I've mainly been using it for street photography. All of the following are shot at f/1.2. Mind you, the 85/1.8 is no slouch and I plan on keeping both.

Collin85, nice captures. I have the 85mm f/1.8 and the 85LII as well. I plan on keeping both just like you.

Malla, I was trying to aim for focus on man's eyes. Agreed, It's a tad soft; but I think it is acceptable.

The focus seems to be the ring. Unfortunately, the husband-to-be's head is grazing the focal point's plane -- making his earring distract the eye to the right side of the frame initially. That's my diagnosis at least.

Dude...thats a great shot! Also...That is sharp for 1.2!!! The DOF might be 1cm!

I REALLY wish that the ring was straight though... =)

I have got to get this lens!!!!!

Bummer, it does appear that way now that I look at it. Initially, my focus was on the eyes. The ring is actually crooked, and I wasn't paying attention to it.

I think this has something to do with the husband's closed eye being very close to being on-level with the focal plane the ring sets on. Perhaps you should make a micro-adjustment of your lens and test for front-focusing; potentially unnecessary or the result of faint subject movement. The variables are endless, but at least you put to rest one possibility.

I thought the focus was really dead on in this shoot. I wanted the man's eye to be the only area in focus. The ring being slightly in focus is a bonus, maybe I should do some post processing to blur out the ring a little?

If your intended focal point was the man's closed eye, then eliminating the competing subject's sharpness would be an ideal solution.

Will take that advice. Thanks.

Anymore 85mm @ F/1.2 shots? It's like an addiction for me to see successful shots taken at f/1.2 with this lens :) I'll have to go out and do more shooting myself a f/1.2, but its' raining right now.

that's a good shot. The 'very soft' comment is silly. His eye lashes are distinguishable from each other.
