(DISCLAIMER - If you are a Pro and you do need to produce the absolute best quality you can to earn money to put food on the table, then I fully understand the reasons to go for L glass. In addition, if you are not a Pro but have loads of cash (or don't mind starving), then by all means, buy L, it is your money).[/QUOTE]

I agree with this. If you are a pro get L. If you are not enjoy whatever you have! The most important is the joy of creating images not the L designation on your glass!!!

Someone has some unresolved inferiority complexes to get over....

I'm pretty sure he got over it in 2005. :)

As noted by the dates on the original post, these are by no means new sentiments on either side of the debate.

I think a good solid part of the "whole truth" here is that no one class or brand of lenses is best for everything.

The 85L can not do what the lowly EF 85mm f/1.8 can (ie super fast focus for sports and action)
Some off brand products can do what no L or Canon lens Can (SIGMA 300-800mm zoom for example)
etc...

Therefore I feel any generalization is a bad idea, and the bottom line is base each purchase on the individual lens' applicability to your needs and budget.

To date, i still own a handful of lenses that are not "L" and use them often.

The 85L should suit nicely.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!
