Getting a new lens is like adding a new person to the family. Each lens has it’s own set of strengths and characteristics that make up it’s personality. Some misbehave in low light, others are suited best for a specific situation, and each photographer finds their favorites that they depend on the most. Last year, in addition to upgrading to the 5d mark iii, I added the 85mm 1.2 to my bag. The first thing I noticed about this lens is how heavy it is. It’s built like a tank! It’s an L series lens for a reason and the glass in this lens is worth the investment. As I’ve gotten to know this lens I’ve used it most for portraits and wedding details. It performs well, capturing portraits well with sharp focus and compression of the background through such wide apertures and shallow depth of field. While we’re still getting to know each other, I think we might become best friends.

Take a look at a recent image shot with this lens (settings: f/2.0 | iso 100 | 1/320) and happy monday to you!
