The Second Canon | Philip Jenkins
«English-speaking Protestants lost the Deuterocanon not through any calculated theological decision, but through publishing accident, and at quite a recent date. Prior to the early nineteenth century, Anglo-American Bibles included the apocryphal section, but this dropped out as printers sought to produce more and cheaper editions. Increasingly too, during the nineteenth century, anti-Catholic sentiment encouraged Protestants to draw a sharp line between the two variant Bibles. If Catholics esteemed books like Maccabees and Wisdom, there must be something terribly wrong with them. In the nineteenth century US, the right to use particular Bibles – Catholic or Protestant – was one of the major forces driving Catholics to create their own parochial school system, independent of the public schools. That supposed “rejection” of the Bible in turn further fueled popular anti-Catholicism.»

Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Review -
Tamron probably more like 86-87mm
Canon 85L IS is more like 84m
Sigma probably in the 83-84mm range
reasonable $1599, which undercuts the 85L II by around $400. The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART is $1199, but the Canon has IS and better weather sealing, so this seems to be a fair price point for it.

85L IS is sharper at average shutter speeds (1/50th-1/250th) handheld than an equivalent lens without IS. If you shoot with something like the 5DsR, that upper limit may extend up to 1/500th second.
5DmV (30MP) with Zeiss Otus 1.4 (sharpest lens) has less sharp results than 85mm IS even at 1/200th

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART, Tamron 85mm f/1.8 VC
autofocusing lenses (Sigma and Tamron) are sharper at equivalent apertures.

that Canon suffers (fairly badly) from longitudinal chromatic aberrations, have to stop the 85L IS down to f/2.8 before the aberrations become relatively unnoticeable and contrast steps up
Unfortunately clearing up the CA isn’t as simple as clicking the “Remove Chromatic Aberrations” box in Lightroom. Lateral chromatic aberrations are the easy fix, but these longitudinal ones are more difficult.

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens review, I mentioned that not including image stabilization in this otherwise extraordinary model left the door open for competition. Canon went through that door.

They'd given John a choice: Antarctica or resignation. He had chosen to resign, but during a simple journey ferrying executives for his father's company, John becomes the latest victim of the infamous Bermuda Triangle. With time running out, all of John's hopes for survival now depend on the self-proclaimed genius of an arrogant astrophysicist that he'd known for one glorious night—Rodney McKay.

Long term review: Canon 5DSR – Ming Thein | Photographer
Much better color out of the box
Preferable (to me) ergonomics and handling
Battery life left a lot to be desired
Long lockup times in live view ‘BUSY’ became a familiar screen.

5DSR has the highest resolution but visibly less distance is in critically sharp focus because the increased resolution also differentiates planes of critical focus more distinctly. The D810 has the most dynamic range, and slightly better pixel-level acuity than the 5DSR.

Canon 5DS or 5DSR - Moire, artifacts, etc..: Canon EOS-1D / 5D / 6D Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
Also, unless you plan on printing 40x60 and larger all the time, then I would personally avoid getting a 5Ds for landscapes. The Canon 6D is their currently best FF landscape camera in every way other than high MP.

Is the Canon EOS 5DS series to be replaced by a mirrorless camera? [CR1] | Canon Rumors
The high megapixel 5DS series from Canon is a niche product in the lineup and it would make some sense to move this series over to the EOS R side of things.
hat said, I have no information about how well the EOS 5DS series of cameras sold, so this could be the obvious line to kill off first.

“Is everything all right?” Allina asks.
It would be so easy to say no, say he needs another powerbar and go sit a few metres away to ponder how he even fell into this mess, wanting Major Sheppard to invite him into his bed and ending up unable to gently let Allina down.

Yan Wushi's carriage was made over in the freshest and most comfortable style, as befitted the Junior Preceptor of Zhou. Even the hangings over the windows were silk; the afternoon light stole over the inhabitants lazily through the translucent gold fabric. Shen Qiao was resting against the padded seat as he often did on their travels, looking up at Yan Wushi with his clouded eyes. Above the neck, the uncharacteristic flush that spread over his pale cheeks was the only sign of the evil activities taking place.
