  • Excerpt: I was looking at the Canon 85 1.2mm lens and the price was WOW. I am a semi- Pro and not really making a lot of money as of yet. I saw and read the reviews of the Canon 85 1.8mm lens and purchased it. It is a great little lens and the pictures are really great.

Bokeh Boken Nonsense

Classic Clips, B&H Photo
3 June 2015
  • Excerpt: Why not selectively choose your boken effect in post production using Alien Skin 7. It is remarkable software that works as a stand alone or as a photoshop plug in. This lens is just as sharp as the 1.2 version, which is 4 times the price. Actually the 1.8 is a tad sharper.

Bokeh for your Buck!!!

  • Excerpt: This lens is amazing for the price. I've never had the opportunity to shoot Canon's 1.2 version of the 85mm, however, this lens must be comparable. I'm shooting this lens on a Canon 5D Mark iii, and it's incredibly sharp.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
