Solved problem of Limited Zoom Lens

Patrick Henry "padraic", Amazon
29 November 2014
  • Summary: This was a risk, but certainly has been well worth it. The zoom lens that came with the Canon D-60 did not give me the latitude with exposure and the clarity in images. I found what I wanted in this fixed lens. Excellent results even though I sacrificed zoom. The high resolution camera setting allows cropping that often provides the close-up with better quality. There is a reason fixed lens are still around.

A Sleeper

Rick Scarborough, Amazon

  • Summary: This is one of Canon's best lenses for portraits and landscapes. Sharp to the corner at medium apertures on a full frame camera with quick and near silent focusing.

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

Better than the 85mm 1.8

Doug, B&H Photo
17 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Using this with my 6D, it produces tack sharp images with a fantastic bokeh. Compared to the Canon 85mm 1.8, this lens produces much better images for me. I just don't get the sharpness, colors and bokeh with the 85mm like I do with this. Plus I prefer the 100mm focal length for portraits. The results I'm getting with this really remind me of my Canon 135mm L 2.0, which in my opinion is the greatest Canon prime lens ever made.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
