|Canon EF is one of the fastest lenses in its class and super quiet, with its ring type ultrasonic motor. This Canon camera lens has one aspherical lens with two high refraction elements, which makes for sharper images. This medium telephoto lens features a floating system that will correct coma for high-quality images. The high-speed AF and 8 bladed circular apertures creates shallow depth of field, and a f/1.2 aperture that brings attention to the subject and blurs the background. The Canon EF is lightweight weighing 2.3 lbs and measures 5 x 5 x 3-inches. This Canon camera lens has a medium telephoto focal distance and super optical performance, which make it ideal for weddings and portraits. This medium telephoto lens does have auto focus, which is 1.8 times faster than the original. Canon EF opens up many possibilities for the beginner photographer. This Canon camera lens has a 72-mm filter size and has 8 elements in 7 groups.|

I always want to buy the 85mm f/1.2 price was too deep,then I know Canon coming out with the Mark II version, I was just going to wait. When I saw this lens on ebay, I got to have it. So far I am very happen with this lens, image are very sharp & you can shoot it at low lighting.
I didn't like about this lens is the weight & the USM auto focus is not as fast as all the Canon L lens.
This this has become my 'normal' lens since I bought it on Ebay a couple of months ago. The image quality is incredible and consistent through the lens' remarkable range of capabilities. I bought a mark II awhile back and was pleased with it's ease of use and speed (it's about twice as fast as the mkI...great for action etc.) but not particularly wowed by image quality. Sold it for a little profit and bought the I on a whim...'twas a bargain. It delivers a consistent "Jeeeeeeeez I didn't know I could do THAT!" kick just about every time I use it.
It's big and clunky and draws a lot of attention but if you want to use a single piece of equipment that never makes you compromise what you're trying get done, this fits the bill. If you're after 10fps speed and great images, go for the MKII; if you're after creative flexibility and outa this world image quality, go for the I. Bargain at any price!
This lens was rated as the favorite among high-end wedding photographers. The ability to shoot wide open with this fast lens and completely blur the background into soft pastel colors is exceptional. The extra stop is amazing in low light situations where flash is not allowed. The heavy weight of this little lens was surprising; you just know it is a quality item. The pictures I have composed with this lens have been greatly appreciated by clients.
I used Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 USM lens with a Canon 5D Mark II camera. The lens is slower than Canon 28-70mm (older version of 24-70mm) and Canon 17-40mm. This is probably because the 85mm is not the Mark II lens. However the pictures came out very sharp. I used the lens in the morning before the sun comes out. None of my other Canon lens of f/2.8 can take pictures in the dark; this lens can. I don't like its slowness, but I like its sharpness and the details captured by this lens. It is a very bright lens. A reasonable price for Mark I lens should be about $1200. Excellent glass. Somewhat heavy. Hope this helps.
Great lens for portraits and cool looking shots. Playing around with the aperture and taking photos with this lens is a lot of fun. Shoots great in lower light settings and makes the picture look clean if you can do it right.
