Stunning lens (Edited after issues)
on 2 April 2012
Although I haven't used this a huge amount since buying it, I am already really impressed. The DoF is incredible and the bokeh which results from the 85mm/f1.8 combo is smooth and deep.
The lens itself is really well built and balances well on my 30D (with battery grip attached). 85mm gives a pretty narrow viewing area, even compared to the 50mm a lot of us use, so be advised you won't be snapping many pictures with this in confined spaces. But get a bit of room going where you can step back and create some depth and this thing is pure gold.
I have uploaded two picture to the gallery.
EDIT: I forgot that I had reviewed this, and feel I owe anybody who reads this an update. I ended up trading this lens in after about six months due to serious front focusing issues.
