Got myself a new lens today.

I have been wanting this lens for quite some time and was going to wait for the MkII version to come around.. So I thought it can't be any sharper than the Mk1 version so went ahead and bought this for portrait and candid work.

Sorry but the weather is crap tonight so just had to share this with you..





Will get some pictures posted as soon as time permits..

Hehe You need the lens caps to stop the lot falling over!

That is an impressive looking lump of glass

Let me know when you get bored with it I might make you an offer

Congratulations, I remember you saying you would get one

That thing must way a tonne, especially with a 1D hanging off it - I would even say it makes the 1D look like a typical camera now with regards to scale

Sorry about the quality of the photo's but yes it looks very impressive if I say it myself..

Having hand held the 200mm f/1.8L and my 300mm f/2.8L this one feels quite managable but still quite strurdy.

without using too many expletives; thats one **** of a big lens!! its almost as big as the 1dmkII you've got there.
congrats though... very nice and crispy. If I recall rightly the 85 1.2 is the widest lens canon do isn't it.

Canon used to do a 50mm f/1, but it's quite difficult to obtain now.

I have read that the 50mm f1 wasn't actually all that good either.

F&M review says it all:

Quote:
Even though its dinosaur weight, millionaire price-tag (3300€), shabby slow focus and not so sharp images at f1.0 I will rate it EXCELLENT.
