impressive shot, Harm


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

Nailing 1.2 on the 85 is one of the harder things to do. Much easier to land shots with the 70-200mk2.

yeah but once it nails, it nails.
This is a lens that anyone can not sell easily...

IMO: For the ones that are comparing with other lenses: pls try to get used to it. If you love your 85L 1.2 ii, that will give you the photos which other photographers can not shoot.

Tip one is to find such a stunning model!

bw! that's a great piece of advice and I agree the model is out-of-this-world gorgeous but I've been known to do a bad job out of almost as beautiful ladies :p still learning I'm afraid!

just took mine out for a test run and feel like it is a bit soft.. even at 1.4 things are not feeling sharp

this doesnt really show the problem as its been reduced so much

but comparing images to my 35mm 1.4 (which is very sharp) im feeling a little disappointed with this lens so far

QUOTED IMAGE

Are you using a focus point? Back button AI Servo? I would even say F4, mostly to increase DOF.

In my case, once I figured out all of the above my keeper rate soared.
