I've been wanting to get a better portrait lens for a long time. I had the Canon 50 mm 1/1.8 II that was good, but knew I wasn't getting quite the bokeh effect that I wanted. I had a hard time deciding between the 50 mm 1/1.2 and the 85 mm 1/1.2 that I got. As soon as I got it I took some pix around the house and outside. The depth of field wasn't as hard to work with as I feared.
Here you can see the awesome aperture in action!
Here was my first try at getting the face in focus despite the shallow DOF.
In the next couple of shots you can see how it is a pretty fast lens and works well in action photography as well.
