I know this question has been asked for the longest time, but I could not find any recent threads on it.
I have a canon 6d and I have rented both of these lenses. Yet I still can't decide lol. I loved loved loved both of these lenses.
50mm 1.2- My favorite focal length. The weight of the lens just felt perfect to me. I got some great pictures with this lens, but I had to work harder for them than its rival the 85mm. The quality of the pictures were a lot softer than the 85 as well, but they did have some equally sharp pictures on occasion...
50mm 1.2 shot-
85mm 1.2- The focal length was a little tight for me, but I could work with it no problem. The lens was very heavy. Almost annoyingly heavy. The pictures from this lens were just beautiful! Crisp and Sharp as can be. I got more keepers with this lens almost a 4:1 Ratio. Now I haven't tried this lens at an event, or on a moving subject.
85mm 1.2 shot-
I have not used either of these lenses with a flash, but shopping around for a studio strobe as of now to buy with my new lens. (Einstein 640 or a Canon 600rt speedilte.)
Im the most indecisive person you will ever meet so this is beyond hard for me! Post some sample pics and your opinion to help me
