The Sentiment Analysis of key attributes from the reviews is summarized as follows:
The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Medium Telephoto Lens uses a ring-type USM, high-speed CPU and optimized algorithms to achieve an autofocus speed approximately 1.8x faster than the original. The high-speed AF and circular aperture create a shallow depth-of-field that brings attention to the subject and blurs the background, which is ideal for portraits and weddings. The floating optical system, which includes an aspherical lens element, suppresses aberrations and ensures excellent imaging performance.
The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM is a specialty lens, perfect for portraits with a very shallow depth of field. Its unique view of the world earns it our Editors' Choice award.
Sharpness in the centre of the frame is excellent to outstanding, even at maximum aperture and for this kind of photography, sharpness towards the edges of the frame is less critical
If you shoot subjects in the short-telephoto range, and need to just lose the background, this is clearly the lens to own
The Canon 85mm f/1.2 L II is not a beginner lens, it takes some getting used to and a basic understanding of depth of field and how it changes as your subject-to-camera distance changes is important too
I included the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II Lens in my indoor action sports lens recommendation list
