Prized for portraiture, the EF 85mm f/1.8 USM from Canon is a short-telephoto prime characterized by its slightly compressed perspective for achieving flattering results. Its bright f/1.8 maximum aperture also enables isolating subjects and working with shallow depth of field techniques, and further benefits working in low-light conditions. Helping to achieve high color fidelity and contrast, a Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements and serves to minimize reflections, lens flare and ghosting. Additionally, a ring-type USM is employed to deliver quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control.

Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Reviews
Perfect for low light
One of the best purchases for price. Portraits are always beautiful crisp and colorful
The lens is light and quick which I like, but the chromatic aberration is AWFUL. This is the only lens I have owned that has given me issues with chromatic aberration. Even though it is a simple fix in lightroom or photoshop, it is annoying.
I just ordered my second 85mm. It's a beautiful lens. I have used it for over 12 years.
This is the best lens every photographer should have. Very durable and picture quality is great, except for the purple fringing that can be fixed in Lightroom.
My new favorite
Light and compact, yet sharp with creamy blurred backgrounds with a slight compression. I shoot weddings and portraits and this lens is just great
After lots of research, I finally ended with this lens and I couldn't be happier! I am not a professional photographer, I just enjoy taking and editing photos and this made my hobby a lot more exciting!
Sharp and fast
just perfect as always with a Canon product
works perfect, light, nice, very fast!
