Things to consider if you're looking
at an F1.2 lens
At over $2,600, you might be wondering if the Canon 85mm F1.2 lens is worth it, when you can get an F1.4 or F1.8 lens for $1000 less. Here’s where you might need the extra half stop.
Low light conditions
If you’re a studio or fashion photographer, or even just someone who prefers the look of images at a high F Stop, I don’t think you need this lens. The real point of a 1.2, 1.4 or 1.8 is to get a shallow depth of field and bokeh effect, so if you’re not going to shoot at those F Stops, why are you getting this lens? 🙂

Great review. But the price for this thing is too high. I wil stick with my belowed EF 85 1.4.
