Re: New and Happy 85 1.8 owner...

I completely agree. It delivers superb results and is probably the best value lens I have ever bought. Sometimes I travel with just the EF 85mm f/1.8 and 10-22mm f/3.5-f/4.5, while my L lenses stay at home.

For portraits I prefer the EF 85mm f/1.8 to the 100mm f/2.8L IS macro. The 85mm is an old design but it still produces great results. With an extension tube it is also a cheap entry into macro.
