i just cant believe canon makes a lens like this.... my 100 dollar nifty fifty doesnt even have fringe... and neither does my sigma 30mm f1.4

That's not true, it just takes a little harsher situations for it to show itself.

The Rokinon 85 1.4 blows it out of the water....if you can live with manual focus. (It's also cheaper than than the 1.8 by 100 clams)

I didn't mention the Samyang because it is MF. Don't know if the OP needs AF but if they don't that's certainly an economical alternative.

Sell it and pick up the 85 1.4. It's pretty easy to manually focus at that focal length.

Yup. The 85 1.8 focuses very fast. It's a great indoor sports lens and general portraiture lens. Stopped down past 4, you won't noticed the fringing.

My 85mm/1.2 suffers from this too, I've noticed. I was seriously thinking of going back to the 1.8 version until I looked at some old shots and saw the same fringing. I've just learned to be careful with high contrast shots now.

The 85L and 35L show fringing too. It isn't a big deal, learn how to correct it in post, takes a second. The lens is awesome!

It's true the L lenses do this too so it's not confined to this 85 (which is a nice priced lens). But, I think it shows more on the newer camera sensors. It's just an opinion but I never noticed it as much on the mk2n/ds2 as I did on the M3/40D when I had them.

I hated the 85/1,8 too. I was very disapointed because of what I heard and waited of it.

That's why I sold it for 85L, much better ;)

I have no issues with the fringing. For the most part I dont see it, if I do get some thats noticeable It takes just a min to fix.
