Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM

Stopped by the "Darkroom" a local camera shop in Missoula and tried out a used Canon 85mm f/1.2L on my 1Ds that was on consignment and used a little fill flash from my 580EX. Would love to get my hands on this piece of glass or at least barrow it for ever! My daughter and I were out taking some portraits with my Canon 17-40L near the camera shop and I thought maybe we should go inside and try out the 85 f/1.2L that I had looked at a week before. This was the older model, but the glass was in perfect condition..... the lens body on the other hand had considerable wear. We asked the store owner / manager if we could step out front of the store to take a couple of shots, I wanted to see what this lens could do wide open. Pretty impressive background blur, and a nice solid feel to it as well.
