It came this morning, no proper pics of it or from it (although i have taken some) but I'm not home yet so a iphone pic will have to do for now.

85L/1.2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First impression.

A LOT OF GLASS
It weights more than the 24-70
The rear element is scary.............
Focus is slow, not a bit slow, but slow.

But it's the Keg!!!! Yay!!!

I would guess he's referring to the fact that the rear element glass is so close to the edge of the mount. This always scared me about the 85L and Magic Drainpipe because I was worried I would scratch it.

The rear element of the 85L is massive. It's flat and sits just right on the very edge of the lens mount. The element protrudes so far out that the electrical contacts literally sits right on the rear element itself. I always have to take caution in mounting this lens as to not inadvertantly scratch it when mounting.

Congratulations! :) It will be a WHILE before I get there. :D My 85 has a faster focus so I really do not mind at all if you would like to do an even trade. :D

This. Kind of makes you nervous whenever you mount it

^^^ yup! Here's a another suprise...about a year after owning, you'll look at that back element and the internal face will be covered in little dust particles. It doesn't affect IQ but there's no way of cleaning it without removing the...no I won't go there....put it this way, it's a Canon service job!

I am guessing it is because the front element moves in and out and sucking in air when it does along with dust?
