Excerpt: Almost bought this lens last year, but held off to buy a 90mm macro lens. But was needing a good portraiture lens for my job and decided to get this lens. Will probably buy one for my person photography later. Love the shallow depth of field this lens is capable of creating.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I purchased this lens to use as an all around lens. It has proven to be great for portrait work. It is very fast and smooth. The images are clear and crisp. This lens is a must have if you are looking for that great portrait.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Really Clear Images, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I was torn between a macro lens or a prime lens. I chose dsthe 85 Canon prime lens. The prime lens is great for portrait shots, low light shots and use it with a higher F stop and it is incredible for those close up shots. Lower the F/stop and you blur the background. Does a wonderful job, many uses
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Low Light Shots, Nice Bokeh, PORTRAIT SHOTS, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this lens on line and wasn't exactly sure it would do what I needed it to do...but after speaking with a sales rep from B&H I felt better... I have to say I am more than impressed and very happy with this lens it is a great carry around lens that does it all...
