    Cons: Slow focusing, expensive, Canon also makes a very good portrait lens, the F1.8.

    Pros: This is pure magic, sharp at F1.2. Beautiful made and a joy to see. There is no better portrait lens this fast

    Summary: You must fall in love with this lens, it gives you what no other lens can give you. Ans a little crazy, that helps also.
