Summary: I'm a full-time professional photographer with 30 years experience. I added videography about four years ago and have been creating advertising material for clients in the beauty industry. I bought this Canon 85 to record a series of interviews with celebrity hair stylists.
Excerpt: This is a great light weight lens. I'm giving it three instead of five stars because of build quality. Optically this lens is amazing but it doesn't inspire the confidence of a professional lens like the L series does.
Excerpt: The first copy I received from B&H was definitely too soft and called for a replacement. My second copy is much better but I do not agree with many of the reviews I have read on this lens. The lens struggles to focus in low light and under the best circumstances it is not tack sharp.
