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.

From the Manufacturer
Retaining the impressive optical performance and large aperture of the original Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L lens, this revamped medium telephoto lens employs a ring-type Ultra Sonic Motor (USM), high-speed CPU, and optimized algorithms to achieve an autofocus speed that's approximately 1.8x faster than the original. This high-speed autofocus system combines with the circular aperture to create a shallow depth of field that brings attention to the subject and blurs the background, an ideal effect for portraits and weddings. In addition, the lens's floating optical system includes an aspherical lens element that suppresses aberrations and produces an excellent imaging performance.

The only draw back of this lens, I guess, is the minimum focus distance. This lens requires some distance (around 3 fts or so), which is fine for portrait but a little bit far for flower close up shot.
Comparing to 135mm, the 85mm f/1.2 is easier to hand held, especially at wide opens; and the 85mm focal makes it much easier to use for indoor portrait (head shot or half body). 135mm is slightly sharper but as any tele lens, the photo is flaten out. The 85mm photo is richer and has more 3-D effect where the object more pops out from the dreammy blur background.
Comparing to 85mm f/1.8 (which is an excellent lens), the f/1.2 is way better at wide opens (f1.2-->f2.0) in focus accuracy, image quality, bokeh quality. At all other appertures, the f/1.2 also has better color and overall image quality, especially at 100% crop.
In short, the 85mm f/1.2L II, as people often mentioned, is indeed the best lens for portrait, especially in-door portrait.
This is an amazing imaging tool. The quality of the bokeh... the colors and sharpness is just beautiful...
This is a gem... anyone thinking about it should simply get it.
New bodies will upgrade... lenses like these will upgrade slowly... and can be used for years to come.
Sure it's a little heavy and a little slow to focus... but the upside is too great to NOT have this in your tool box.
This is for sure my favorite lens.
