You know what – I simply love this glass. I heard a lot of good things about Canon 85mm f1.8 but I’ve always been bit skeptic about the lens and specially its relatively longer focal length (compared to 35mm or 50mm) which means you need to be bit far away from the object you’re trying to capture.
But the moment I put this lens on my camera, I’ve fallen in love with this wonderful glass. Bokeh is creamy and simply awesome. Price is reasonable and affordable. If you stop comparing it with its f1.2 sibling you will love this lens any day and any time.
