Excerpt: This lens is GREAT! I am so happy with it. It is spot on, so sharp. Yes, taking pictures with f/1.4, you have to be precise but that is with any fast lens. But this lens exceeded my expectations. I took pictures of my Grandson playing tennis, and I couldn't be happier. So happy I purchased this.
Excerpt: I'm only sorry I didn't invest a lot sooner in better glass!! This lens is beautiful and the sharpness is amazing! I don't have the Nikon version so I cannot compare but I'm loving this lens and the price was excellent!!!
Excerpt: I use this either on a full frame camera (usually studio) or on an APS-C camera (usually weddings/events) for an equivalent focal length of approximately 135mm. Typically stop it down between f2.2 and f5.6. I like the focus speed, colour, sharpness and constrast. Great value for money.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens almost 1 month ago to celebrate the people I have the privilege to work and play with. It's a joy to see their faces captured by such a high fidelity piece of hardware. I shoot using a Canon 70D and portraits are in breathtaking focus; depth of field is fantastic.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
A beautiful lens that gives professional grade results.

Summary: Seriously, this lens is beautiful. I have played with so many 85mm lenses... Both of Canon's 1.2 L's, Canon's 1.8, the Rokinon (also beautiful, but manual focus), and this one. After testing Canon and Sigma's back and forth extensively, I just can't say that Canon's lives up to the price tag.
Excerpt: This lens creates super sharp images. I'm very happy with the quality in creating portraits, both in studio and on location. The autofocus is quick and doesn't spend a lot of time searching, even in low light.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
