    5 out of 5 stars   Great camera lens to an extent
    By Tank (The Beach) February 11, 2016
    Review submitted for Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN85USM)
    Verified Purchaser

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: Not too bulky. Lens functions great. Crisp shots.
    Cons: When they say 'Portrait" lens they mean it. It really is made for close-up head shot portraits rather than family/group shots. You would have to really distance yourself for group photos with this camera.
    Other Comments: Still a nice addition to my camera bag:-)

    5 out of 5 stars   Awesome glass!
    By lola (San Francisco, CA) March 01, 2014
    Review submitted for Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN85USM)
    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: I had the FD version of this for 30 years and it was my portrait lens for the entire time. Wonderful images! I just bought the EF copy for my 5D. I shot handheld in a dim restaurant at f1.8, 1/60th and ISO1600 and the images were tack sharp. It was my 3 year old grandson and focus locked immediately and quietly on his eyes. Of course his ears were out of focus, but it gave a nice, dreamy look to the shots. Very impressive wide open and gets better from there. Do not hesitate (as Ken Rockwell says), BUY THIS LENS!!!!!!
    Cons: Absolutely nothing!
    Other Comments: Great price, awesome lens!

    4 out of 5 stars   Snappy focus, a bargain low light lens.
    By DaveNYC (New York, NY) January 16, 2014
    Review submitted for Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN85USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Lightweight, Fast / accurate auto-focus
    Cons:
    Other Comments: I needed a little more reach and better wide open performance than my Canon 50mm 1.4, operating in low light events. While most of my subjects don't move fast, a couple do, so snappy auto focus was a must. I'm happy to say this lens, shooting at 1.8, does everything I need to do without crowding my subject. Used on my 5D Mk III at typically ISO 6400, the results are very usable shooting at f 1.8/2, even cropping in up to at least halfway. Used with a hood, I have not seen any flare yet.

    5 out of 5 stars   My First Piece of Glass
    By Larry the Lawyer (Ithaca, New York) June 05, 2013
    Review submitted for Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN85USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Nice Bokeh
    Cons:
    Other Comments: I am an attorney who creates hundreds of educational videos. This is lens is part and parcel of a new video series, and exploration into better video production. My first piece of fixed, high quality glass (Canon Red Series), and worth the money. My only caveat is that it requires more focal distance than I imagined. Making it a bit harder for the solo artist to set up the shot and run back into position. I'm just marking the ground/floor.

    Other Comments: I have been a Nikon shooter for 50 years, and just got a Canon 6D with 24-105 zoom. I wanted to buy a couple of prime lenses for working in low light, and for doing astrophotography. So I am new to Canon, but this 85mm lens is really wonderful, as is the 35mm f/2.

    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
    Cons:
    Other Comments: Great lens. I have a crop sensor so I wasn't sure I'd need this focal length, but so far it's been useful when trying to get up close to a subject without intruding. I'd say I still use the 50mm 1.4 more, but this was a nice addition to the collection.

    Other Comments: When I received this lens I attached it to my Canon 5D MK III and went outside to take some test shots. I took several orchids that grow outside and forgot that I had my camera set at f/9. When I downloaded them I was totally shocked to see the detail and colors with this lens. I put one on Facebook and everyone that commented was amazed. I love this lens and hope I can use it more in the future. It will surprise you.

Fast turn around time for the shipping, and the lens was brand new in the factory USA box (found out all about grey market equipment when I was searching for my new camera body). As for the lens itself it is a great value for the price, extremely sharp and the DOF is superb.

    Pros: Lightweight, A Real Value, Nice Bokeh
    Cons: Minimum Focus Distance
    Other Comments: I am very happy with this lens. I shot a party outdoors, dusk, mosquito time. The photos were brilliant and looked bright. Was in full auto and they were mostly wide open, f/2.0 f1.8 Was very impressed with the color at this low light. Using a 5D mk2. Not the same amazing focus as my 100mm L macro, but still the images were really nice. I had several comments from peers about the pictures. some of my best work with one of my least expensive lenses. Get it !

    Review submitted for Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN85USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros:
    Cons:
    Other Comments: I was looking for a decent, low light lens to use at kid's school plays/recitals. I was tired of blurry pictures due to slow shutter speeds with my zoom lenses. I picked the 85mm because it gave me some good closeups without having to be on the stage itself. Faster shutter speeds attained at f1.8, but very shallow depth of field. Need to get used to apeture/shutter speed/ISO compensation now that I can shoot in lower light.

Get the lens, you won't regret it.

    4 out of 5 stars   Great lens, nice kit!

    Review submitted for Canon EF 85mm F/1.8 USM Lens Exclusive Pro Kit (E1CN85USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Sharp beautiful photos
    Cons:
    Other Comments: While I need to work on my technique in low light, fast movement situations, I can see the lens' potential (more than my own)! I've enjoyed using it for portraits, some really nice bokeh and sharp images. The kit was nice to get too. I didn't think I'd use the bag, but have ended up using it every weekend since I got it! Loved having a filter. The lens cap holder was quickly broken by a happy dog jumping up to see what the dangling toy was, so probably not the kit's fault.

    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Lightweight
    Cons:
    Other Comments: Bought this for narrow depth of field portraits of family. I usually carry this prime along with a general purpose zoom (24-105 or 17-40). The 85mm prime delivers the most eye catching photos by far and is currently my fave lens!

    5 out of 5 stars   Super Lens!
    By Linda (Pennsylvania) November 26, 2010
    Review submitted for Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN85USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Nice Bokeh
    Cons: NONE
    Other Comments: I use the lens for action shots at dog shows. Most of the time the lighting leaves a lot to be desired at these events. (indoors) This lens is fast and accurate and blurs out a lot of the activity that you do not want to see in the background. With the wide open aperture, you can get a fast enough shutter speed to stop the action. This lens is as good as or better then my L glass in this venue. Sharp,clear photos just about every time (unless I mess it up:-) Don't hesitate to buy this lens if you are looking for something to use in low light that is fast, sharp and right on. Just buy it!!
