Summary: This is going to be my go-to lens for portraits from now on. Buttery smooth backgrounds, crisp subjects. You'll want to use a tripod as there's no IS, unless you're using a bounce flash... but other than that this lens is simply awesome.

Summary: I think this is a great lens, especially if you are looking to use it for portraiture, where this lens really shines on a full frame camera. I will probably be in the minority here, but when I got my 5D MIII, I purchased this lens along with the Canon 135mm F/2L for a side to side comparison.
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.
