Product description
Discuss in the Canon SLR Lens Talk forum

The Canon EF 85mm F1.8 USM has been in Canon's lineup since 1992, but still offers a highly attractive combination of small size, low weight, good optical quality and relatively low cost. This makes it an ideal 'carry everywhere' lens for portraiture and available light photography on Canon's full-frame and APS-C DSLRs. This lens gives good but not outstanding performance on digital at F1.8 but improves rapidly upon stopping down.
