Exposes real skill and lack of skill!

  • 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 open that will result in your jaw dropping in complete awe. If portraiture is your thing and if you don't have to sell a kidney to buy it, then THIS is THE lens to get.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

GLASS

  • Excerpt: The glass alone makes me feel that the money was well spent. I don't think I would ever have to buy another portrait lens again. Most incredible shots I have ever taken. The bokeh is beautiful, especially at f1.2. The only thing that I would tell people interested in buying this lens is that it is a little slow, but it is completely understandable since it has a long distance to rotate when focusing. Best lens in my arsenal for sure.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

I like this lens a lot

  • Excerpt: the glass on this lens makes everything always look just a little bit better. The short DOF is amazing. It is heavy. If you're using it for an hour straight you start to feel it in your arms. This is my favorite lens for portraits.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus

Great Lens For Wedding Photography

tierneycyanne, Adorama

  • 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. I am still figuring this lens out but it's a great one to add to my collection, bridging the gap between the 50mm and 135mm.
  • Pros: Strong Construction

Best lens for portraits

efnaka, B&H Photo
1 July 2014
  • 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
