Tried out this lens at a recent event at work - took me a while to realise that half-pressing and recomposing is impossible at 1.2. Keeping everything centre or shifting the af points is the way forward with this lens. Looking forward to use if for my weddings!

1.2

Just mean it's time to swing for a 5D3/1DX (when finances become available) so you won't have to F&R as much. :D

Thanks guys! And Aaron you might want to consider picking one up used from the classifieds on here. I did and got a killer deal for 1600. And that shot above is at 1.2 with no MA :)

Bryant superior shot wide open :) You miss the 50L at all? I was thinking of trying 35L/85LII combo....possibly keeping the 135L or selling it fund the 85L II. I currently have a 5D III 35L/50L/135L combo. Thanks man :)

35 + 85 is perfect :)

I have one more shoot left this weekend which will be the last time I use the 85.
Upgrading again!

Are you going to sell your 85?

I saw you are going to pick up a 200LF2.0 isn't it? :cool:
