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
Cool product. Great experience! B&H photo offers the best service
Its my favorite lens for portraits. Very good overall, shows some chromatic aberration here and there. A better lens costs much more, weighs a ton and leaves you broke. So, it gets 5 stars, in part for value and portability.
I bought this a month ago and I haven't used it much, but so far I love it.

Have only used it a couple of times, but happy with it. Can't wait to use it on the grandkid, since he's always moving the lower aperture should help quite a bit. Said refurbished, but looks just like new. I will be buying again.
