Man the bokeh was incredible...how fast is focus on the 50 1.2 compared to your 85? I know it's probably faster, but usable as candid lens? I've been contemplating on a 50 1.2.

Incredible shots!! Dammm, you were rocking the 50 and 85 1.2?? I was already convinced my 85 1.8 was good enough...haha...Now did you have focusing challenges with the 85 1.2? I've read that the 1.2 II is half as fast as the 1.8.

Really?

A lot of the photos were OOF. (Mostly the people's face) At least it appears that way from what I see.

However you did a great job of capturing the moment.

I was about to assume all the photos were OOF shooting wide open but man alive they are fantastic! Great color and subject isolation. Congratulations!

For some reason when I view the pictures in slideshow mode, a lot of the pictures seem OOF but when you view it in the normal mode, the pictures are very sharp.

Like others said, the bokeh is awesome.

I think they look OOF in the slideshow because there being artificially expanded to fill the frame even though he didn't upload them with enough pixels to do that.

I cold be wrong, but If you look at this logo, it looks pixelated in a few of them.

Contrary to what others have said, I don't see out of focus photos, though I didn't look at everyone. One had good focus on one person but the shallow DOF made the other person look out of focus.

I'm guessing that your camera gear probably put the hired photographer to shame with your $2700 5D2, and $1600 each for teh 85 and 50 f1.2.

I found the slideshow seemed to have oof images, perhaps it was just an issue with that.
