Get if you can...you will be so happy when you see how sharp it is at f/1.8.

I picked up this lens and a 28/1.8 just after Christmas, both used (in excellent condition), with hoods, for CAD$720.

Deal of the year? I think so. Haven't gotten a chance to put the 85 through its paces yet, though.

I just bought a brand spanking new 85mm f1/8!

Damn this copy I have is SOOO sharp! I just can't beleive it. I find that it is a great addition on my 7D for a walk-around lens walking the streets downtown snapping at anything with slight interest.

Yeah I also like my 28mm.. and my 17-40 and my 70-200 HAHA. but the 85mm has got me by my b...s right now.

I can't beleive how many people sell this lens. What's up with that?

The only thing I hate is the clip on hood.

Hey I feel good that it 's a super sharp copy and it's ALL MINE!

Thx


Oh yes you did now go and do the shooting :D
