Ashley @ zilker park
Daytime went pretty well =). I'm still writing a small article on portraits... I have a final in 2 days, so hold on!

As far as the Canon 85mm f/1.2 L goes, it's a spectacular lens, but for my purposes it's a bit excessive.
The thing weighs a ton, and the autofocus is a bit slow. With adequite light, f/1.2 seems to give too much dof, I found myself opting for f/1.8 - f/2 most of the time... using the maximum aperture seemed to give a to make her nose out of focus with the focus on her eyes... and the rest of her body? Totally blurred, and blasted away.
Even with the extra f stop, the dang thing is too heavy... causing some additional shake from your hands. If you want to take it for a try, go to precision and rent it for yourself!
