    85 1.2L is a bad-ass lens it's one of my bucket-list lenses for my Elan 7Ne.

    Use the 85mm with the EOS 1N.
    The EOS 3 is a flawed diamond. The ancient EOS 5 has also reportedly had a similar glitch with focus precision with this lens.

    Prey tell, what are you doing in Kabul!? Are you embedded with the forces there?

    I wont be letting anyone near the 1n and the 85L as they work beautifully! I am just so annoyed that I lost SIX MONTHS of shooting portraits with anything longer than a 50 due to this issue. I keep some kit in Kabul and exchanged lenses (taking time to get here from the US), exchanged again, exchanged bodies (from home) and lost a lot of time. I've been shooting a long-term project in Afghanistan. See 'Russians and Royals' www.thomasstanworth.com Almost finished now. I have a fair few more portraits printed and waiting for me in the UK.

    Tom, your exasperation is felt. The venerated 1N will work beautifully with anything Canon throws at it. Guaranteed.
    The Kabul photographs are reminiscent of the style of MAGNUM lensman Trent Parke: contrasty, moody and atmospheric and full of impact. Just defies belief anybody could get a camera in there and roam around freely without being hunted down by the nasties...
