Canon 85mm f/1.8 - a normal prime lens for the masses

MistaBernie, Overclock
1 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 is a nice piece of glass. Being an EF lens, it is compatible with all EOS cameras regardless of sensor size, which is a definite plus compared to EF-S lenses which are for crop (APS-C) bodies only, like the Canon 10D/20D/30D/40D/50D/60D/7D and Rebel/ xxxD series.

Canon EF 85mm f1.8-Astrophotography Use.

Adorama
1 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I bought this for astrophotography use based on the MTF curves, it appeared to meet all of the criteria. I used it on a Canon 550D, and the results are very disappointing. Extreme coma is very evident making the lens unusable for astrophotography. It is however a very fine daylight portrait lens.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus

False advertisement - NOT new, but second hand!

daniel austwicke, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this NEW directly from Amazon, when it arrived, it was sealed (or so I believed). When I opened it, it was clearly second hand! There were scratches on the lens contacts and had clear signs of use! Amazon is getting a bad habit of this practice!

Extrem schlecht!

MrsNatro, Amazon
26 March 2016
  • Summary: Unglaublich, was Canon hier für ein grotten schlechtes Objektiv abliefert! Abgesehen vom USM ist das Objektiv auf einem Stand von analogen Objektiven aus den 80er Jahren. Zwar beginnt die Offenblende bei f1.8, jedoch ist es in Bezug auf eine brauchbare Schärfe erst ab f3.5 nutzbar.

  • Excerpt: кто пользовался китом и захотел портретную стекляшку скорее всего будет вдохновлён, но это ненадолго.. через 3 месяца продал, перекрестился и взял себе Samyang 85mm f1,4. стоит дешевле, но стекло интересное, рекомендую
  • Pros: автофокус (перед покупкой)
  • Cons: промахи автофокуса, сплошной пластик (включая линзы), отсутствие в комплекте бленды, чехла, рисунок никакой, 1,8 нерабочая.. достаточно?
