Just boughted myself an 85L mk II. That plus my 35L and 1Ds III completes the trifecta.
Welcome! You now own the greatest lens in the world.
Well I will once it arrives. I'm trading my 85 1.8 + cash to a dude for it.
no 135L no trinity!
Well that too. I'm going to stick with my 70-200 for now to cover the longer ranges.
sorry, the 1ds3 shouldn't be part of any holy trinity. No body should, for that matter... They go obsolete so quick... You'd have to have a 1d4 or a d3s, and they'll be replaced in a year...
The primes, hell yes.
Well I have a D3s but I see your point.
Ok, so my holy trinity will have to consist of the 35L, 85L and.....ummm......the.......
135 is holy trinity, imo
I want this lens sooooo bad. I've been thinking about it for the past 1/2 year and trying to justify the price. My biggest concern is that the 85mm would be too long on a crop body. I picture myself doing a lot of stitching in PS.
GO BACK TO NIKON PLANET. WE ARE HERE ON CANON PLANET.
i LOVE my 85 1.8 on a crop body. i feel like it is such a more usable focal length than a 50mm was, but then again, i use it for stage pictures of my daughter dancing and for portraits.
holy trinity is 35, 85, and 135
i'll get back to you when I think of a come back.
The 1D got pozzed
So good, even Canon boys find a way to put it on their cameras.
Welcome to the club.
What do I hate about this 85L??
The fact that even after my firmware update, I was only able to snap 40-50 photographs before it drained the battery and shut off the camera.
If I can't find a way to fix that I'm selling it.
It's a lens so good it made me consider jumping to Nikon.
and you didn't... because?
Time to send it to Canon methinks.
Damn, i want a 85l Bad, just can't justify spending the money for it just yet. Maybe come spring.
5D2 + 85L
Cost prohibitive. To replace my gear like for like with Nikon, I would have been upside down by about $4k.
