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. The large minimum aperture is great in low light.

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! My 40mm I bought NEW from Amazon directly was exactly the same! Both lenses had dust inside also...

  • 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.
  • Pros: автофокус (перед покупкой)
  • Cons: промахи автофокуса, сплошной пластик (включая линзы), отсутствие в комплекте бленды, чехла, рисунок никакой, 1,8 нерабочая.. достаточно?
