85mm for Indoor Basketball

By 

from Bay Area, California

Comments about Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Standard And Medium Telephoto Camera Lens:

This review is mostly for the crop sensor shooters. I read that this 85mm is a great lens for shooting indoor basketball in the basket area. After purchasing this lens to go on my 7D, I learned that I was unable to shoot from under the basket. It seems this lens works great for the full frame bodies, but on the crop sensor cameras such as my 7D, this lens did not work for me. It is zoomed in too much on the crop sensor cameras. A great overall lens, but it does not help me for shooting basketball under the basket.

Great lens

By 

from Iowa

Comments about Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Standard And Medium Telephoto Camera Lens:

I really like this lens. It is sharp and fast, and well priced. I use it for sports, weddings and portraits and it does a great job. Rapid focus and sharp images. I have noticed some blue fringing on a few images and IS would be a plus. I like it for low light images.

Great sharp lens - AF switch gets moved a lot

By 

from Salt Lake City, Utah

Cons

  • bad af switch

Best Uses

    Comments about Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Standard And Medium Telephoto Camera Lens:

    This lens is great quality. Crisp and sharp. My only complaint is the AF switch. It is build different than most Canon lenses. It protrudes out from the camera significantly where most lenses the switch is flush. Many times I have done photos and toward the end of using the lens noticed the AF switch got bumped to off either while on my hip or in my camera bag. When using this lens always remember to check the switch because it always bumps off. Canon, please make all future lens AF switches flush.

        Comments about Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Standard And Medium Telephoto Camera Lens:

        My first primes lens was the nifty fifty (50mm 1.8) . I absolutely loved it. My next lenses had to be the 85mm 1.8 lens. I read the reviews and decided to get it. Wow! This lens is so sharp and focuses very accurate and quickly. Now given... my 50mm 1.8 is very impressive, but this 85mm 1.8 takes the cake for me. My portraits have a smooth and creamy back ground at 1.8 and it's tack sharp. This lens was well worth the investment for me. Thanks Canon ...

        Superb prime lens for crop frame Canon

        By 

        from Chicago, IL

        Comments about Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Standard And Medium Telephoto Camera Lens:

        I bought this prime 85 mm f1.8 lens on the advice of a couple of website reviewers who raved about the quality. They're absolutely right and this is now my favorite prime lens. What you get is a razor-sharp focus in a focal length that, for a crop frame camera (e.g. T3i) is telephoto enough to do some serious portrait work at a comfortable working distance. Edge sharpness is excellent, and at f1.8 it's fast enough for most lighting conditions. Build quality is excellent, and the price at Canon's refurb shop makes it a steal. Buy this lens.

        If you have a Canon DSLR ...

        By

        Pros

        • Fast auto-focus
        • Small and light

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Standard And Medium Telephoto Camera Lens:

            If you have a Canon DSLR with an accurate autofocus system, I recommend this as your first prime lens. Even before you by a 50mm prime. It is delightful to use at large apertures to create lovely bokeh. It really excels as a portrait/people lens. The focus system is lighting fast, quiet and very accurate. It spends a lot of time on my 5D Mark 3. You don't always need big, heavy "L" lenses to do the job. This little lens frees you to be more creative and it is just plain fun to use. You may see reviews referring to chromatic abberation wide open. Yes it is there, but it is minimal and doesn't show up in normal photography. You really have to set up a special shot just to find it. It is completely absent if you stop down one F-stop, but why bother? I wish Canon would make this with IS, then it would be the perfect prime lens for me.

                All I can say about this lens is AWESOME! Sharp when you want, shallow DOF when that's important! I don't see a reason to pay that much more for f1.2 but who am I to say?
