An excellent lens. But I got a Canon 85/1.8 USM for half the price of the Sony 85 1.8 FE.

The Canon is cheap and quite ok for the price, especially considering the crazy price of the 1.2L version that was the only option before the 1.4 IS release.

But make no mistake, the Sony is much better, in every way. There is just no comparison betweem both (I had the Canon on Canon bodies and I have the Sony now).

The Sony is L quality, just start at f/1,8.

I don't need to compare them. The 85/1.8 on my A7 produces images which are superlative.

Well, you did...when you compare the price of both.

You could say that an OTUS is 10 times more expensive than the Canon. But this statement, alone, without putting in perspective the difference of quality is misleading.
