Canon’s f/1.8 lens flies the flag for the more affordable end of the product range and turns in a very solid performance, suggesting that sub-£400 versions should not be dismissed even when set against four-figure rivals.

Over the course of my ownership the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM has been quite impressive. Despite its color fringing in high contrast scenes, the lens performs wonderfully for almost any composition. It’s fast and accurate autofucus has helped me to capture shots I thought I had missed.

Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM is one of the best medium telephoto prime lenses in Canon's arsenal. Combination of stellar performance with both APS-C and FF type cameras and affordable price, make this lens an interesting choice for general as well as portrait photography.

For those who use small-sensor digital SLRs and do portrait projects, this is a "must-own" lens. For those who use full-frame cameras, this is a "probably should own" lens.

This medium telephoto lens from Canon sports a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture and ultrasonic silent focusing that is performed internally for around £315.

The Canon EF 85/1.8 USM is a very good lens. It's one of Canon's best lenses and it's certainly near or at the top of the list of Canon's best value lenses. It's far and away better in all respects than any comparably priced zoom lens, and probably arguably better than any zoom lens regardless of...

I have a very strong love/hate relationship with this lens. Thankfully, the love outweighs the hatred as it truly delivers excellent images when used correctly and sidestepping its shortcomings.

Best lens for the price. An "L" quality lens as far as I'm concern. Wide open @ F1.8 it's a bit soft at corners, with some slight purple fringing throughout. But stopped down to F2.5 all those disappears. Plus fast focusing. The only negative is the minimum focus distance.

This lens is great quality. Crisp and sharp. My only complaint is the AF switch. It is build different than most Canon lenses. It protrudes out from the camera significantly where most lenses the switch is flush.

Bought this Lens at the end of my canon rebel XSI's shooting days. Was put on my 7d mark i most of the time and gave good quality photos for portraits. Now with the 5d mark iii I feel it is being fully utilized.

An outstanding portrait lens for Canon shooters on a tight budget, or even those who can afford anything. Not as beautiful as the 85/1.2, but smaller, lighter and quicker handling.

    Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture, good bokeh, sharp from corner to corner, fast focus, cheap

    Bokeh not as smooth as the pro lenses, plasticky build

An amazing lens that every camera owner should have. A great value because the price includes lots of extras. Speedy delivery, nicely packed. Thanks!

Lens is great and lives up to everything the reviews said. In this case, the kit was added for the same price so even though the kit quality is so-so and several of the items (usb and bag) shown in the picture didn't come with my kit, the fact is I would just end up throwing them in my junk drawer,...
