Just sharing some shots from a shoot I did for X-Mas cards last week. I'm no where near the talent of some the strobists here since I'm a landscape photog. Anyways, it was a last minute request. :)

Hi,

After reading tons of positive review of EF 85 1.2 L II in this thread, I bought this lens. For in-door portrait, the copy I have is super sharp, the focus is very fast and dead-on.

However, for the out-door, when the object is under direct sun light, the copy has CA (color blur) problem. Both pictures are shoot at 1.2. In the first (white car) one, purple fringing is obvious. In the second one (roof shingle), both green and purple fringing are clearly visible. I tried to fix the CA using latest DPP (v3.9). However, the improvement is almost negligible.

Do you think I got a bad copy? Or it's normal? Thanks!

It's normal for the 85 @ 1.2

All three copies of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 L II USM Lens I have used to date show more CA (Chromatic Aberration) than the older 85 L. And my 85 f/1.8 shows less CA than either version of the 85 L lens. The 85 II lenses I have used are producing noticeable CA at the widest apertures when sun glares from something reflective in the shot (such as a chrome car bumper). For most applications, the CA will not be a big deal - and removing it in post-processing is often possible.

Lightroom, and possibly other pp applications, has functions to reduce it.

Some degree of CA is common -- your first shot shows the most common conditions of high contrast, and of course the bright white against dark detail makes it stand out like a sore thumb.

This kind of thing is better handled with something other than DPP, unfortunately. As far as Raw processors, Lightroom, Apertures, maybe Capture One have local adjstment brushes and I know Lightroom has some good "targeted" color channel adjustments so you can use a brush to desaturate the purple fringing in specific areas or do a global desaturation of purple (or the same with the greens).

But, of course, Photoshop or other software that has layers, masks and special tools are the "standard" way of approaching things -- you can make selections, deal with them using masks and precise brushes, etc.

By the way, it's not just the 85 -- you get this type of thing with the 50L also just because the extremely wide apertures make them vulnerable to this.

Those shots are crops !? If not, this might be the worst pics this lens can do. For crops @ 1.2 in sun light, my copy is tack sharp. Of course CA and fringing in high contrast shots looks like yours. Technique is the key to avoid those behaviour : AF in One shot mode, no hard black/white contrast, low iso...

But the 85L is generally really tack sharp, more dedicated to low light situations already. Your shots seems unsharp for me but it's hard to judge on 2 shots and not specially taken in the best conditions. The 85L is capable of best and worst. By using it, you'll learn the results you'll get from the scene you have in front of you and sometimes avoid the awful shot...
