Last week I purchased a Canon 85mm 1.8L Lens to add to my kit bag. This is the first 'non professional' level lens I have purchased for a number of years, however, this glass has received good reviews from professionals and enthusiasts. In addition the lens comes with a reputation for producing stunning bokeh and crisp sharp images. Yesterday my wife and I walked in a local forest so I took the opportunity to test out the lens and grab a number of test portrait shots in natural light.
On first look I am very pleased with the performance of the Canon 85mm 1.8 USM lens. The lens appears to be delivering to a standard that would be required when working commercially.
