As much as I love this lens, I think I'm going to ditch it for the Sigma 85. Was trying to hold on for the ART, but I can't wait anymore.

You got 200mm f2, why you need to ditch 85L? :)

I don't like carrying the 200 around everywhere I go. The only reason I'm thinking about it is because the Sigma 85 to me seems to go give the same IQ that the 85L does and has fast(er) AF. I might just buy one to test out and if I like it let the 85L go.

I have owned a couple of the Sigma 85/1.2 and sold my 85L II and always went back to the 85L II, built quality doesnt compare, and the sweet bokeh of the 85LII is uncomparable and so recognizable, somewhat of a personal prefereance but I am not going back to Sigma anymore now! :)

Personally I had a very good copy of the Sigma 85mm f1.4 and it was hard to judge which shot came from sigma and which one from canon. Only reason I asked the other poster was that people get sigma for the $$ difference but that poster already had 200mm f2 so money is not an issue. In that case I would pick 85L over sigma. I had them both for more than a yr and then sold sigma but felt bad.

Re-uniting with the 85 1.2 II goodness, after a few years of separation.

Just a snap shot - got to use an 85L today on a friends 5d3. I see now why they call it the keg!
