ef85mmf_12_1_
Review Date: Mar 3, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Amazing Bokeh, sharpness quality from wide open, L quality built.
Cons:
Color fringing (wich can easily fixed in Lightroom,) a bit from the weight but the quality of this lens balances off easily the negative points. Flimsy hood.

I have just bought this lens used.

Long time Canon user, I can say that I am really astounded with this lens so far. Many reviewers said that this lens is veeery slow for focussing. I think not that much, I am quite surprised. If compared with the fasted auto focus speed from the fastest lens, yes it is. If you come from a distant subject to a very close one, it could take some time but it is not that slow for still objects. However, for a moving at different angle or speed, tracking must be a difficult task for this lens. There is a lot to move in there.
