Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

Review Date: Jan 17, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $530.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Low weight. Internal focus. Superb sharpness from f/2.8
Cons:
High Chromatic aberration. Lens Flare even with hood.

Great Lens for every day use. Smooth bokeh. Small lens with low weight so you can pack it in small bag. You can pay no attention to barrel due to internal focus, so you can't broke it when carrying it. And no dust collecting when focusing.
Weak perfomance against light. It causes huge flare when light source is in front of the lens.

Pros: Build like a tank. Great lens for travel. You should try hard to broke it! Lowest weight for L lenses. Cool for APS-C.
Cons:
Distortion on full frame. My copy isn't sharp at corners (not a problem on crop)

I own this lens for 3 years. It is simply great on crop. Dust and Rain is not a problem. Light weight make it possible for camera to be on your shoulders all the time in bike tours!
