I think the point here is about the price. Is the lens worth 6 f/1.8 lenses? I mean, one can buy 85 1.8, 17-40, 70-200 f/4, AND Sigma 50 f/1.4 instead of it. I was one of those people who traded my entire kit for 85LII just to try it out, and cannot look back.
Others may like to shoot with various cheaper lenses vs one that's just 1 stop faster than 85 f/1.8. I turned to be one of those people who'd have 1 pair of good jeans vs 4 pairs of OK jeans...still good, but not great.
I think this discussion is more about trying to justify the price of 85LII. Is it worth it, or is it not? It's for the OP to try and decide.
