The 82mm 1.2 II is expensive and a heavy lens to carry around. On a 500D, the setup would be front heavy. Also 85mm on a cropped body would be tight street photography. I agree with Catchlights that a 50mm or 35mm on FF would be better. I also found that the autofocusing system of the 85mm 1.2 to be frustratingly slow for Canon lenses. You may also want to consider using Neutral Density (ND) when shooting at 1.2 for outdoor shots. Without ND, I found himself having to stop down (1.8 or 2.8 or 4) to get better exposure (also less softer effects) albeit loosing some bokeh.
