So I just received the loaner of the 85L from Canon CPS, and after going out with my sister and taking some portraits, the results are as jaw-dropping as the price tag. Nailing focus at 1.2 is definitely a challenge, though the EG-S screen helps a lot with that, but when focus is nailed, wow...

I'm going to have a hard time sending it back to Canon when the time comes... :oops:

Photos taken with a 6D and the 85L (obviously) at ƒ/1.2 in all natural light.

Think you captured the essence of the 85L. Very nice work.

Love all 3; but for me, No3 displays the quality, functionality and purpose of this lens in the best possible way.
I want one...


Tons of enthusiasm, loads of kit, limited skill...

Thanks! I think I nailed the composition for that one, but looking at it again, the whites might be just a tad hot.

Agreed. #3 is my favorite one of the three.
