Ive just got this lens last week and am still trying it out. Ive come from a sigma 50mm f1.4 which I was really happy with on the image side but the AF let me down compared to my canon lenses so Ive swapped over.

Its ok at F1.2 at distance but I'm not entirely happy with it closer up as it seems a bit soft but that might be the operator! It also suffers from quite a bit or purple fringing in bright light, is this normal?

Anyway, heres an image from a damian McGillicuddy speed light course I went on last week. F4, 125th. Beauty dish to the left and a kicker to the rear. (superb course by the way)

Cheers mate, I absolutely love this lens, probably more than my 85L!

The dreamy feel almost adds another dimension to the photos and the fact that it's not tack sharp wide open contributes to this I think.

...hello everyone, im thinking of getting this lens to somewhat fill the gap between 35-70 range ! my choices are between this lens, 85, or 24-70, but im leaning more towards the two primes.

which would you recommend?

Personally, i would go for two primes, i dont think it's for everyone though, but i love working with primes. I am a hobbyist and normally have the time to enjoy my shooting and moving about to get the shot i want with primes. I use what you see in my sig, the 17-40 getting less and less use(the 24mm is mostly wide enough), the 50L being my favorite.
I would love to add the 35mm and 85mm to my lineup, but i feel i'm covered for now.
The 50L and 85L sounds wonderful if you can afford it, it's very rewarding when you look through your shots afterwards. The 50L isnt a sharpness king, but you can get them sharp enough at 1.2, if you hit it right, it takes practice. But it's mostly about the rendering of things out of focus and the dreamy feel it creates.
The 85mmL is very sharp at 1.2 they say, i havent tried it. But i love the combo of 24mm, 50mm and 100mm, but i use a 60D.
