Pros: Very good image quality - sharp, good contrast and bokeh. Light, compact, fast and silent AF with FTM, popular 58mm filter thread. And all that for less than $400.
Cons: Color aberrations (the fringing) can be too much sometimes, in some specific lighting conditions. Disappointing lens hood design, and it's not included. The minimum focusing distance is 0.85m and it doesn't make it a good close-up lens.
Opinion: In short, for the price, it's a dream lens. A wonderful option for someone starting his FF adventure. The moment I put it on my 5D2 for the first time it was like magic. I could shoot a nice, or seemingly flawless picture of anything and everything with it. Almost no boring images. I even kept many misfocused ones. Compared to a cheap 50F1.8, this is a next level lens. And it's the level that I'm comfortable with to this day. However, if you have an extra $100 lying around, then you might like its bigger "sister" more, the EF 100F2 USM, which is a bit better in many aspects, same level though :).
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Cons:Does not have the hood in the package, plastic construction, soft to TA
Opinion:Optics with excellent value for money: if the portrait is not your bread and butter, it will allow you to enter that world without spending a capital ... Just close a stop sign to have a good sharpness: light, small, transportable, it is an excellent starting point. Also easy to find on the second-hand market.
Opinion:Definitely a classic of Canon, I tried it both on apsc and ff and has a yield that I always like very much, bright with a beautiful bokeh, sharp already at 1.8, af fast and precise, some forum user has rightly written "a series L missed" in fact I feel like sharing this opinion, the only note against are the chromatic aberrations / purple fringing that occur in certain situations of strong brightness. Value for money 10. Advised!
Pros:Economical, lightweight, compact, accurate and fast AF
Cons:Unstabilized, Notable chromatic aberrations
Opinion:I took this as my first specific portrait lens. The chromatic aberrations were remarkable on aps-c, definitely reduced when I switched to full frame on 6D but always present. It is the cheapest among the 85mm AF, with a decidedly high-performance autofocus compartment, fast and above all precise even with the sides. The lens is small and lightweight, a boon for transport. It is unfortunately not stabilized and the minimum focusing distance could have been lower. The blurry is good but not top.
Pros:Light, sharp, beautiful blurry but exaggerated at maximum aperture, autofocus fast enough
Cons:For the price none
Opinion:For the little that I used it in my opinion a good lens for portraits "close" without being stuck to the subject, I also did some landscape and does its duty. If you want to create context in the photo for me is not good, it tightens too much. Quite good color rendering, easy to carry. Hood a bit ridiculous but it's good for the cost / yield ratio is certainly not the hood the problem. Hello
