Is the f1.2 of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 L II USM worth the premium price?
I'm quite interested in the 85mm prime but the mid-range lens, the f/1.8 doesn't offer the same sort of aperture to be found on the 50mm.
Is it worth the extra cash to go for the L series f/1.2 lens. Of course I'm sure that you'll get more than just a wider aperture, the glass quality must be excellent, but it is a big jump in price ($358 -> $2,049).
I'd have to save an awful lot longer to go with the L series..
I'd say it definitely depends on what type of photography you mostly do. Portraits/Still life? Go for the 85L. Action/Sports? Have a look at the very excellent 135mm f/2L

Thanks for the answer. At the moment I'm mostly taking street/city type shots, with some nature shots thrown in. I don't see myself doing too much action/sports stuff in the near future.
I'll bear the focussing slowness in mind.
