On of the best

The 85mm f/1.8 is a great lens. Not THE greatest, but considering its price, there is no reason not to get one. Fast AF, large aperture, sharp, good color, pleasing bokeh, small, light and solid, this lens just works. There are other, more impressive lenses on the market, the 85mm 1.8 gets the job done. If your pictures are bad, you are. There are many uses. On crop cameras, is good for indoor/low light sports, concerts, medium sized products, portrait etc. On full frame cameras it is even more of an all around lens. Only its long minimal focus distance is a weak point.
