Pros: Great image quality. Nice bokeh. Sharp at F2. Decent build, better than the EF 85F1.8 USM (a bit more metal). Fast and silent AF with FTM. Pretty compact and not so heavy. Quite affordable. Small and popular 58mm filter thread.

Cons: The hood design is a joke, which is a rattling piece of plastic and it's sold separately. Color aberrations (the fringing) are lower than with the EF 85F1.8 USM, which come into play only in some specific lighting situations, but they are still there. Not a big problem (for the price). Doesn't work well for close-ups (MFD=0.9m). Not stabilized.

Opinion: I really like this lens very much. More than its smaller, but slightly (and reasonably) cheaper 85F1.8 "sister". Works beautifully on my EOS 6D. I wish it could focus a bit closer, but there's nothing that an extension tube couldn't fix :). It produces pleasantly sharp and contrasty images with a nice bokeh. Which is a fantastic deal for $500. Recommended!

Pros: Spectacular quality-price, very sharp photos, excellent AF even if old

Cons: Nothing lens hood

Opinion: Target bought on the market at 270 EUR and delighted to have taken it! The photos come really well. I have yet to improve the technique with this because I often get one side of the face brighter than the other outdoors but for the rest is the maximum. To start doing portraiture is a perfect springboard. Luckily I found it already equipped with lens hood.

Pros: Light, compact, chromatic rendering, balanced contrast even in critical situations, resistance to backlighting and parasitic lights, precise and lightning-fast fire.

Cons: Lens hood not included, lack is but they were other times.

Opinion: A good reason to keep it close is its surrender, it is too contrasting and not even vintage. It's already sharp at f 2.0! At 5.6 It makes all the pixels of the machine sweat... and I'm 30mp. A bit soft on the sides if used to f 2.0, but no astigmatism or artifacts, so no problem for the final images... but I talk about the unnecessary magnification to monitor. It's perfect, I love it. If used well, no one goes indifferent to his images. I had the 85mm 1.8 brother of this, and it has no real points in favor, the 100mm is along that little bit more than for the portraiture establishes the correct distances. Plus it has a bokeh with personality, it tends slightly to create concentric but soft games, without astigmatism, and to me this thing drives me crazy. It's him, I could recognize him among others. I also use it on the Sony a6500 for videos, with MC11, the focus ring is not among the most fluid but it works well, the manual focus is immediately at first shot without games. Compact, no mistake a fire.

Pros: Sharpness to TA. The price in relation to the excellent quality

Cons: It annoys me the fact that the lens hood is purchased separately. I took on Amazon a commercial for a few euros and it's fine.

Opinion: I confirm all the good that is said, I bought it used in a physical store very prestigious in Rome and I think I got a good deal. It seems to me that it underexposes slightly, not that it is a problem but I would like to be comforted by other users by the way. I only did a few test shots with a 5 D Mark 3, and I have no photos to show, as soon as I have one the place on the site with pleasure. I hope to have opinions about the underexposure. I also add that with Kenko 1.4 it works fine. The opening becomes an honorable 2.8 and with very little weight we carry a more than honorable 140 mm. I finally tested outdoors the lens bought used. I confirm how good I had already said, in this case I had no problems of underexposure, the autofocus, was immediate and it seems very accurate. The photo was taken in the street with the Nice collaboration of an unknown tourist also passionate about photography. https://www.juzaphoto.com/galleria.php?l=it&t=2870558 thanks

Pros: Compact (which is also a defect), lightweight, F2, sharpness, price

Cons: As far as the optics nothing... Too compact, difficult to manipulate. For the lens hood speech.....

Opinion: I use it on 6DMK2, very interested focal length for portraits. Light and compact (perhaps too much, if not used with lens hood is too short and difficult to handle) very fast in focus, even in low light conditions. Closed at F2 creates a good boker effect and gives three-dimensionality to the subject in my opinion a hair (but very little) higher than the Canon 70-200 is USM F 2.8 a TA but lower than the Canon 35 L F 1.4. (which I consider the best optics I had with 3d effect wowwww) Closed a couple of stops does not lose any speed or sharpness, but I think you lose his real magic. Perhaps the only drawback is the lens hood, (but not really), which is as large as 3/4 optics and mounted "stretches" in a flashy way, but it becomes easy to handle... Always Diacorso lens hood The attack is not really the best (old style with the two buttons side) and even the most practical, but just leave it always mounted and you will reprint to the problem.... I was a bit skeptical about the fact that a TA F2 could use filters from 58, (have such a small front lens compared to 135l or 35l) but I have rethought. Good value for money. Rated 8.5 recommended for those who want to spend little and have an excellent fixed for portraits and not only.. Although I think it stays too small.
