Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

Review Date: Apr 24, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $329.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Great bokeh, excellent in low light. Great for portraits.
Crappy hood design, doesn't store well.

This is my second prime after he 50 1.8 and I think the 85 is an excellent addition. Very fast focusing, excellent bokeh and color. I sometimes go out with the 17-40 and the 85 as my high quality 17-85 kit :-)

I'd definitely recommend this lens as a good low light performer as well as a great portrait lens.
