New and Happy 85 1.8 owner...
May 7, 2010

I just love it! I loved my 35 f2 very much and never looked back after I sold my Tamron 28-75 in order to fund it but I did miss the tele-end for shooting outdoor portraiture and head and shoulder portraits..... Yesterday my wife bought me a 85 1.8 for our anniversary and I have to say It's really great. It's sharp wide-open, good bokeh (fits my taste) and the USM is very good (it's my first USM lens....). I know I'm going to have a lot of fun with it this summer. Here are my first few (all wide open and no crops):

I've been reading a lot of reviews in advance and I was a little afraid for the MFD... I'm glad to find out it;s more than sufficient to fill the frame with a head-shot!

Greetings,

Jeroen
