  • A Must Have!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JpegRus - November 26, 2021

    If you have been debating about getting an 85mm prime lens for your canon mirrorless body, this is a no brainer. With fantastic macro capabilities, great bokeh with the 1.8 f-stop and overall light weight. This lens also is great for portrait work and landscape/architecture if you want to dive into additional forms of photography.

  • A Must Have For Macro and Portraits
    Verified BuyerReviewed by keads - November 17, 2020

    Perfection and easy on the wallet. If you can find one, get this lens. This can go toe to toe with $3,000 glass for a fraction of the price. The auto focus can be a but sluggish, but the images are tac sharp and the bokeh is sooooo good.

  • Super sharp
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Bobi - May 28, 2021

    Perfect portrait and bokeh lens, and it's really sharp. It's not real macro, don't buy it if you wanna shooting macro. There is a little issue about auto speed focus its slow but for portrait photography does not need fast AF.

  • The Perfect Focal Length
    Verified BuyerReviewed by tfergie1977 - July 29, 2021

    This lens will not steer you wrong. I love the image quality and the speed is also wonderful as long as you change the focusing distance. The the maximum focusing distance it can be kind of slow being that it's a macro lens. The other downside to this lens is that when it does go into macro mode, it is slow at coming out of it so don't look to go directly into another shot after coming out of macro. But other than that, I love the lens and the quality it produces is on par with some of the more expensive ones.

  • Amazing lens!
    Reviewed by Foxphotography - January 6, 2021

    This lens is amazing. I have it paired with my Canon R6, and it's so easy to get great shots with it. Makes me wonder if I'll ever need to upgrade.
