My go-to lens for people

  • Excerpt: Bought this for portraits and it's exceeded my expectations. Focus is great in available light but does struggle in low light situations where timing could be an issue. I mainly use this as a studio lens so AF speed isn't a major concern.

Nice portrait lens

  • Excerpt: I have just purchased this but I had demoed it before deciding to buy it. It is a very nice portrait lens and very fast at f1.4. I took some shots at f1.4, f2, etc. and was amazed at how sharp they were. It was also much less costly than Canon's 85mm lens.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

not bad

  • Excerpt: Use for portrait. A bit soft when wide open. Based on the other reviews I was expecting it to be a bit more sharp. Although f/1.4 is not that useful anyways, and it gets very sharp at f/2, so it is OK. It focuses slightly back so I had to manually micro adjust on my 5D MkII.

  • Excerpt: If you're looking at getting an 85mm prime... this is a great lens to try. Significantly less expensive than some options it definitely performs at a very high standard. Beautiful.
