super sharp

  • Excerpt: I have had this lens for several years and it is my go to for portraits.it is so sharp, I often find myself softening the pictures to satisfy my clients. great weight to performance ratio ( is that a thing?). I chose it over the 85 becuase of the bokeh being just that little bit nicer...YMMV. excellent build, can't say enough about this glass. Can it really get any better than this? Wish it had an included lens hood..
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Sharp Canon lens but!!!

  • Summary: I recently purchased the new Zeiss Otus 50mm and I needed a simple portrait lens so I got this canon Lens! I was very pleasantly surprised by both the sharpness and Bokeh of this lens! Actually the image quality is about equal or better than any canon lens that I have used, however just like the Canon 85 f 1.2 and the Canon 70-200 its has a soft blur when u use it between F 2 to 4, making skin tones too soft for my taste (when zoomed in at %100) In the past I have had...

Crisp lightweight lens

Peter Lemonjello, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This lens does a great job at getting reasonably closer to a subject without having to be in their face to get a good shot. Lightweight, great depth of field. Solid prime lens. I wish the F-stop was 1.4 like it's 50mm cousin to do even better in low light, but I'm sure that would kick the price up quite a bit. For what you do get, the price is great on this lens.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
