  2. Nope, there's nothing to dream about. If the 85/1.2 were really better than
    the Nikkor it would be sitting on the old Mk III as we type.

  3. Slander, that, you should try it with a real robber, not
    someone as hardheaded as you ...
    I ask for an apple and you say "This lemon is also a fruit".
    Thanks, but I asked for an apple. Do you have only lemons?
    What, half a pixel CA? You really go for the last dregs,
    having run out of straws, inventing problems as you go.

    You forgot to mention that the CA in the _slower_ f/1.4 Nikon
    lens is the same. Actually a few hundreds of a pixel worse
    below f/2, that is.
    Are you that blind or do you have to work hard for these prejudices
    and imaginary failings of Canon lenses of yours?
    At complete darkness, you just forgot to mention that, right?
    Oh, oh, these sour sour grapes! I do not need sour grapes, if
    I cannot get them! Are you really trying to out-penis-envy Rita?
    Fast lenses do that, and Nikon is not better, Nikon's
    offering is _worse_, even though the lens is _slower_-
    You wanted to show me a better offering from Nikon, right?
    Failing that, you start complaining about gravity and other
    physical laws? You are a poor luser[sic!].
    If I wanted to stop down, I could save a lot of money and buy
    the 85mm f/1.8, or simply use one of the grand 70-200mm
    lenses Canon offers.

    With nine blades you get 18-bladed stars when stopped down.
    I see. That must be why Nikon is so much overrepresented
    there compared to the sales of their lenses.

    Not to confuse and dazzle you with facts, if that was so, there'd
    be no critical entries there, but there are, especially with
    these poor, unloved bad lenses. Oh, yes, the 85mm f/1.2 does have
    points of criticism, valid points, like being anything but cheap,
    like not having a fast AF, etc.

    And I see you are so deep in the Nile, that you forgot that
    it's not only not just a river in Egypt, but it also has many
    a crocodile swimming in it, hungry for blind fredericks.
    Length matters: everything above 2.75 inch is OK, below it's
    a micropenis. Circumference is a bit more important for pleasure.

    But perhaps you, like 45% of men, are secretly afraid of having
    too small a penis and fearing their partner(s) (if any!) are just
    too polite. Projection is a very common psychological reaction.

    While I don't see any
    I count 19 different lenses, *5* of which are variable aperture.
    Go ahead and call the EF35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L USM a "consumer zoom".
    Go ahead and call the EF28-80mm f/2.8-4L USM a "consumer zoom".

    3 out of 19 is "a lot", Nikon makes a 85mm f/1.2 and the world
    is flat.

    Guess that sums up any fears you might know what you talk about.
    Only if the marketer markets very good items for very good
    prices. Now, there are things where you get way less than
    you pay for, like that 50MPix subcompact point'n'shoot ...
    Now, there's a group of lenses to be proud of.
    Weeeellll ... either it's sour grapes, or you never do photography
    in other than well lit conditions or on a tripod. And that at a
    time when Nikon claims such superior ISO6400 performance, with
    their "new leading sensor technology" ... sounds like 3 pounds
    of sour grapes to me.

    But then, I do a _lot_ available darkness photography.

    Unless you apply a sledge hammer to the Canon lens first, we
    all know you're of the "whishful thinking" type. But sure,
    I'd like to see the performance of your relabled lens,
    especially at f/1.2 and f/1.4. You know, shallow DOF and all
    that. I'll be waiting with bathed breath for your shots.
