Pros: Best bokeh: creamy, soft, with large out-of-focus circles, brilliant contrast and colors, very good sharpnes

Cons: Large, heavy and expensive. Electronically driven focus, so you can't adjust the focus when the camera is turned off. Filmsy lenshood, turns while manual focussing the lens, large rear lens element can easily be scratched when mounting the lens, very slow AF for a USM lens.

Opinion: This lens provides brilliant contrast and colors, and very good sharpnes. Even wide open the images are sharp and by f2 the sharpness is very high. Since it is large and heavy and since its AF ist comparatively slow, working with this lens is not always easy but the results are stunning! The lens hood can be easily mounted (clip on) but it is a little thin and flimsy and it rotates with the lens front when used in manual focus mode. The electronically driven focus requires you to connect the lens to a powered camera to be able to change the focus manually (typically when you want to retreat the extended front tube before packing the lens in a bag). The large rear glass element of the lens is unprotected an can be easily scratchen when mounting the lens on the camera.

Pros: Supreme quality.

Cons: Weight and footprint.

Opinion: Used for a year in a few shottings. I'm not like fixed optics, I get tight and I'm not one to spend my days in the studio, but with this 85mm I have a lot of fun. Unfortunately it needs special conditions to be used, and it is right that it should be. Its construction marked an era; envied by all, quality close to the Zeiss and a pleasant three-dimensionality in portraits; but too sectoral for its use.

Pros: excellent image quality even at full aperture, blurred with quality.

Cons: weight, autofocus speed, cost but i don't think real flaws are physiological

Opinion: There are 85 mm faster, more incisive, more something else.... but what is the use of too much sharpness when the canon has enough of 1.2, even the stabilizer is useful but I have never felt the need on this lens, moreover if you make portraits at least 1/60 it is better if you put it since people move :-) there are discussions about what 1.2 is needed compared to 1.4. I did repeated tests to test it lunge before using it for portraits, and not even those who lend it to me have ever noticed anything, but between 1.2 and 1.4 you do not see differences in real photos on the depth of field and blurred in the classic sense, but there is one thing that changes and is immediately seen in certain types of photos, so it is not the same to put 1,2 or 1.4 and it is not better one or the other, it depends on the type of photo ... for me it is a lens that deserves all my esteem.

Pros: Everything: especially blurry, sharpness

Cons: As long as there are any?

Opinion: Reading the reviews I decided to give him a nick name too: Jumbo, I don't know why but it reminds me of the fuselage of the most famous wide body in the world. The lens is of very solid construction, beautiful to hold in your hand, but above all to use. It is magical I find it spectacular for close-ups to enhance one detail of the subject compared to another I would always like to be making portraits with this toy.

Pros: Three-dimensionality, Planes Detachment, Colors, Sharpness, Blurry

Cons: Weight and foot-and-mouth

Opinion: Magic lens with all its flaws if they can be considered such. I mounted this lens first on a modest 650D, but recently I use it on a worthy machine such as the Canon Eos R and I must say that it literally changes, acquires its full potential on the R, three-dimensional, sharpness already at TA, I must say that the AF is also faster than the old machine, although it is not miraculous in certain situations especially in the backlight. For portraits it is a must in my opinion to have, obviously very static portraits where as mentioned the AF does not go crazy and also because its weight feels it at the end of the shooting session, but my initial impressions and now with the R are really "first of the class" without a doubt any. Top! Rating 9.5
