Yongnuo 85mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

Well-suited for portraiture, the YN 85mm f/1.8 Lens from Yongnuo is a short-telephoto prime designed for Canon EF-mount DSLRs. Pairing well with the slightly long focal length is a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture that benefits working in low-light as well as affords greater control over depth of field for selective focus control. An AF/MF switch on the lens barrel permits quick switching between focusing methods, and the lens can focus as closely as 2.8' to suit photographing close-up subjects. Additionally, gold-plated contacts permit working with all exposure modes as well as transferring lens information to the EXIF data.

Ideal portrait-length prime is designed for full-frame format Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however this lens can also be used with APS-C-format models where it will provide a 136mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture offers increased control over depth of field and also benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions.
An AF/MF switch on the lens barrel allows you to select focusing methods, with either setting allowing you to focus as closely as 2.8' away.
Gold-plated electronic contacts convey Exif data between camera and lens and also permit working M, Av, Tv, and P shooting modes.

    Yongnuo 85mm f/1.8 reviews

    YN 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Canon EF is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Auto-focus stopped working after 3 months Auto-focus stopped working.� I tried to contact Yongnuo for 1 Year "Warranty" and got this response: ??? Thanks for your reply. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience brings you because of product malfunction.� In that case, since we do not have service center in your country, if it is indeed needed, you can send it to us(China) for repairing, but you need to undertake high postage. (Please note that you should undertake the shipping cost back and forth, and the postage sending the item back to you is about $43USD or more) So we advice you to contact the seller to negotiate according to the purchase agreement. Or you can ask the seller for help of sending it to us for repairing. Thank you very much for your great support for YONGNUO products!� I'm not sure if I'm willing to shell out $50 and NO, I am not going to ask B&H (who has been an amazing supplier over past 15 years or so while I was doing weddings) to pay it either.� For $180 lens, it's just not worth it and no guarantee it won't happen again after I pay for them to 'fix' my 3 month old lens :(

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the money, but not the best Zoom in close enough and you'll see green and purple traces around your subject.� This lens is good for the money, AF works well enough, but if you're a stickler for chromatic aberration, this is not the lens you want.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good lens not perfect I got this because it was the kind of lens that could get me the results I wanted. Although it is not perfect, and I have to do more work to get the result that I want it does eventually get the job done. For a Hobby Photographer its a good intro-portrait lens.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Craptastic Plastic! This lens is horrible. I have literally not even had a chance to test it out on a shoot and it's already rapped out on me. It jumps from AF to Manual and back on its own and doesn't even let me take a shot. I have to remove the lens and place it back, just to get it to work...at least until it starts to happening again. What I get for trying to save a buck...Lesson learned. Horrible!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice lens I was a price point shopper and often disappointed with the result. Not the case today. I put it on my 80D and I am certain this will end up as my favorite lens.
    Date published: 2017-05-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Por ese precio, vale la pena! Un buen lente, un poco de aberracion cromatica en su maxima apertura, pero si que vale para hacer retratos. Por ese precio, vale la pena. Contruccion buena, plasticos de media calidad y sistema de enfoque bastante fluido.
    Date published: 2018-01-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! 1- the price is right! 2- fast and accurate focusing. 3- image quality is decent!
    Date published: 2017-09-04
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had to send the first one back It's okay. I sent the first one back to B & H because the motor in the AF gave out after about an hour of testing. They were certainly good about that and rushed me a replacement. Overall, I'd say the lens is okay. Sharpness isn't always consistent. It has it's sweet spots. 5.6 to 11
