Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

(1/15) > >>

My girlfriend indulged me yesterday and allowed me to take pics of her. I took the 24-105mm f/4 L and the 85mm f/1.8. I soon detatched the L in favour of the 85mm f/1.8 for its far better bokeh. I used the 85mm wide open, to maximise that effect.

CR Backup Admin:
I do lots of theatre photography with it, but I have to watch out for spotlights, it does not handle them well at all.  Notice the purple fringing on the badge of the cap at f/1.8.  My 50mm f/1.4 and 135mmL handles it better, but its still there.

85mm f/1.8

50mm f/1.4

135mmL Also has purple fringing at f/2.

I love my 85. :) I'm glad I got this over the 50 1.4 since I've read that the 1.4 isn't that much better than the 1.8. I picked up a 50 1.8 afterwards for indoors because the 85 is too tight at times.

Mrs. Canon:
This is a little old, from last fall.
