Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

ef85mmf_18usm_1_
Review Date: Dec 16, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp wide open and on all apertures, fast and accurate AF, beautiful bokeh and the built is very good (not L)
Cons:
I can't think of one

Everything has been already said. So I'll just list the most important things. I'm a portrait photographer, I do a lot of min dof portraits. This is an excellent performer, very sharp, my copy also at f1.8, AF is accurate (taht is important for min dof, because if it misses a few mm the sharpness is completely off). Bokeh is excellent too, creamy. I think it's by far the best portrait lens for the money it sells.

Here a 100% crop, taken at f1.8 ISO 200 http://img283.imageshack.us/img283/6817/100sr7.jpg .
