The EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens from Canon is a highly practical medium telephoto prime lens ideal for a range of applications including portraiture. Its fast f/1.8 maximum aperture is effective in low light and ideal for shallow depth of field focus control. An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) provides fast, smooth and quiet AF action and because the front lens group does not rotate during focusing, polarizing and special filter effects can be used effectively.

- Ideal for portrait- October 29, 2016
Its the ideal lense for a budget shooter, as 85 is a beautiful portrait range, and with the 1.8F, you can really capture a lot of emotion and DOP by pushing that blurred background. The only thing I would have loved is the image stabilization, but for a prime lense purchase guide on a budget I highly recommend this one, the 24mm and the 35mm. Focusing is pretty fast, much faster than my 24-105mm, so for video where I need to quickly shift focus its pretty good. The only downside for video is that the motor is still a little loud for my taste, and it pulls back and forth to land the focus. I don't always like that effect, but at least it does it fast enough.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Love this lens- June 12, 2015
My wife and I purchased this lens to be used at a low light wedding. We purchased it for the wide aperture, and the 85mm length, allowing us to now be right on top of the ceremony. This lens worked beautifully. Love the depth of field we are able to create, and the beautiful bokeh that comes with it. The images come out crisp, and clean every time. One thing to note, for those who may not know. When using this type of lens, you will not want to solely relay on your camera's auto focus. A manual touch is sometimes required to ensure that your subject will be in focus. There were times when my AF said it was in focus, and I had to adjust it slightly to get everything as clean as I wanted.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Lens- January 18, 2017
I do quite a bit of work as a photographer & have slowly been expanding my lens collection. Camera gear is obviously quite expensive, so I've been trying to save money by purchasing lenses that are great, but maybe not praised as much as some of the more popular professional ones. The 85mm 1.8F from Canon has been a great lens for the price - perfect for portraits, some work on weddings, low light conditions, and even some live music photography. It's sharp, clean, quiet, & has proved to be quite a wonderful addition to my small, but growing lens collection :) I'd recommend it for anyone who needs an 85mm lens, but doesn't have thousands of dollars to invest in the more expensive ones like the 1.2/1.4.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
