Love / Hate relationship

sonbossie, B&H Photo
26 January 2015
  • Excerpt: With this lens I do mostly family and child photography. It is an extremely sharp lens and I love the bokeh. The only thing that frustrates me is that it is very slow. So it's tricky to use with little ones two years and younger, because they move to much and to fast. But then I switch to my 24-70.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: This is a hunk of glass! I debated getting the 1.8 or the Sigma Lens 85mm. I am so happy I spent the extra money and purchased this lens. Coupled with my new Canon 6D the images are spectacular. I have the Canon 2.8 70-200L lens.

The best portrait lens

Tidejag01, B&H Photo
1 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Not much to say other than this is the best portrait lens. Your subjects really pop. I've used the 50mm 1.2 and the 70-200mm 2.8 but there's just something different about this lens.

Exposes real skill and lack of skill!

Stephen, B&H Photo
10 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This is an incredible lens. It is astonishingly frustrating to use when you try it first and particularly if you've not shot at f1.2 before. The focus ring takes forever to turn full circle and AF is not very quick, but with some perseverance there is a surreal quality to the image when shot wide...
