ef85mmf_18usm_1_
Review Date: Nov 28, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $325.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build, color, bokeh, AF, sharpness
Cons:
A bit long on 1.6 crop, slight CA

This is a great lens. I did a lot of research before spending the money on this lens, and I was expecting a lot from it. It actually exceeded all of my expectations. I don't have the money for the 85L, and honestly I didn't want it because of the slower focusing.

My only minor complaints about it have been voiced before. It is a bit long on my 20D, but I knew that going in. Also there is just the slightest hint of CA, but this is only noticeable when viewed at 100%+ and in very high contrast areas.

I do not intend to sell this lens, ever. Cars--yes, house--
yes, but not this lens.
