Best lens for portraits

efnaka, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I was not sure about buying this lens because it is really expensive. However, after a few shots at BH I decided to buy it. I could not be happier with this lens! Sharp images, event at f/1.2! Autofocus is quick enough for portraits, maybe not for sports though. After buying this one, I hardly see myself using another lens. It is perfect for portraits in a full frame body. Flare is ok, CA is fine, distortion is fine.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: I wrote this review in portuguese. we have to much reviews in english here and out, so i tried to help my non english speakers friends from Brazil.---------Eu comprei essa lente com expectativas elevadas. Afinal é uma das lentes mais caras da Canon e uma L. Quando a tirei de caixa com um sorriso no rosto me surpreendi com a qualidade da construção e a beleza dessa peça de vidro.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh

A gem of light and color

Mamoart, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I love the lens, just used it for portraiture and the results are grand. I think I need to learn how to properly use it to my advantage and avoid misfocusing, I know I will learn... The manual focusing is something I have to get used to and then I'll just fly!!!

Love Hate relationship

Mike, B&H Photo
4 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is both my least favorite and my favorite lens. Wide open it's difficult to get all of the subject or even just the eyes in focus. If you move at all the focus will go out. You have to use not only autofocus but your own eyes as well to make sure what you want is in focus. It's somewhat slow to focus and a heavy lens. All that being said this lens produces the best bokeh I've ever seen! There's just something magical about this lens! ...

The #1 Best Portrait Lens in the World

Schooba Bob, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: Length:: 2:12 Mins OK guys, the 85mm carries a huge price tag for most average people. Due to the price, a lot of people are wondering if they should get the 85mm F1.2L or the 50mm F1.2L . I was in that boat too, and I ended up buying both. So I think the choice of 85mm verses 50mm deserves a good look. I'm not going to pick apart the technical aspects of this lens, because others have done that and frankly that is nerdy and boring to me.

quality of light is amazing

cheerykyri, B&H Photo
26 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Pros: the quality of light that you see through this lens is phenomenal. The rendering is special and no other lens comes close. Amazing in low light. Cons: hard to focus and it's easy to get blurry images if you're not careful This is a portrait lens but I've used it for my kid's concerts indoors and for sports where it does a tremendous job of isolating the subject and really bringing attention. Mostly use this for modeling shots/fashion where it just shines.

A True Gem....

Mythos888, B&H Photo
23 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Un packaging... Wow, Heavy, as big as a grapefruit. Immediate Thought... Does not matter, this is awesome! Did not Find this to be slow focussing as some have said. This is a Portrait lens Period, not meant for sports or fast action. Take note: Even with A polarizer in bright sun this can force you to stop down to 2.0 at L (50) ISO with a 1/8000 shutter speed.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
