NOT for child portraiture

Brian Kelley & Carolyn Taylor, Amazon
19 November 2015
  • Summary: I tried the lens for all of two hours before deciding without any doubt to return it. Autofocus is a must for child portraiture and the speed of this lens is just way too slow. The bokeh is every bit as dreamy as everyone says, but my subject was always just out of focus or not sharp at all when in...

what a great piece of glass

Photocat, Amazon
24 October 2015
  • Summary: Wow, what a great piece of glass! The bokeh is outstanding. I had the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens and though it was nice, I sold it because it was too heavy to enjoy using on a regular basis. I found myself using it less and less.

BEST Overall Portrait Lens You Can Buy & Worth EVERY Penny!

Megan Krueger, Amazon
16 July 2015
  • Summary: If I could give this 10 stars, I would. Seriously, it's that good. As with a lot of other folks, I fell in love with the 50mm very early on in my photography "career." However, I fell in love with it on a crop-sensor camera, which means I was really falling in love with a 75mm lens, which I'm just...

Super lens

adamh, Canon
26 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I have wanted an 85mm 1.2 since my first days of serious photography, back in the 70s and the old SSC (Super Spectra Coat) lenses. All my years of waiting ended about 6 months ago, and I couldn't be happier with this lens.

Awesome Lens!

Stephanie R Pezzelle, Amazon
13 February 2015
  • Summary: I love love love this lens! I'm a professional photographer specializing in seniors, couples and families. I use this lens a lot in my senior portraiture. I primarily shoot this lens to create the beautiful creamy backgrounds that the 1.2 aperture allows for.

Great Lens For Wedding Photography

tierneycyanne, Adorama
29 July 2014
  • Excerpt: It's heavy and a little slow to focus (in my opinion) but it's a great focal length that provides a deliciously creamy background! I tend not to use it wide open but rather keep my aperture around 2.0.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

Living in Video and Cinema

Eamon Long, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • Summary: This lens is ridiculously fast. I am a cinematographer and sometimes lighting on set for a 2/2.8 split is as fast as your glass can go. With this thing, even if incredibly difficult to pull focus on(the throw is GIGANTIC), this lens lets me dive a little further without destroying the video by...
