DOF: Canon f1.2 vs. Zeiss f1.4

Canon 50mm f1.2 vs. Zeiss 50mm f1.4.

Canon 85mm f1.2 vs. Zeiss 85mm f1.4.

That is the question.

I'm liking the Zeiss, because they are purist primes - optimized for manual use, with long throw, precision focus.

There is no denying the Canon glass is sexy. And highly recommended.

I used to think 1.2 was a full stop faster than 1.4, but Wikipedia says only a half stop.

I'd appreciate comments by anyone with a working knowledge of these lenses.

FWIW - I just bought a Canon 90mm f2.8 T/S. That purchase was driven by stills application, but obviously the lens could be used for video as well. On one level, it is hard to justify another +$1K lens in my kit at 85mm, but the lure of superspeed primes is undeniable.
