I sold my 85 1.2L for the 85 1.4 Art finally for the same price.
I think it was about 12yo

There was no distance communication between the 85L and my body as it was still the MKI (intresting to have seen that I have a Godox TTL strobe)
The Sigma hit-rate is a lot higher and out of tests there isn't much difference in bokeh /dof between f1.2 - f1.4, the glass is made for higher resolution, so it's definitely an upgrade.

I started without docking station, i'll see next week if the AF is spot on, or needs to be adjusted between -9 and +9 like some say.

Yes, my 85 Art needed small adjustment with the dock. I also sold 85L Mk. I for this lens, and no remorse so far. AF speed improvement is a big plus. No problem with the hit rate. As a matter of fact, I have better keeper with 85 Art, thanks to faster AF.
For example, sharp candid photo like the one below was hard with 85L Mk. I.
