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.
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.
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Large Lens Opening, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I'm extremely happy with lens about the lens.. Amazing sharp Images with the an amazing Bokeh.. Really amazing lens. NOW the downfall, which I'm willing to live with. The lens AF is a little on the slow side, so if your woking with fast paced subjects forget it..
