Is it better on full flame than crop sensor?

It's a very good lens for both FF and APS-C. Fairly small and light, ring USM with FTM, nice price, and good optics, especially stopped down a little. On FF your field of view is a nice 28mm while on 1.6x you get a FOV of 45mm. Good little bugger...

Nah, I reckon it is better on a crop sensor than on a full flame :D, unless you mean to burn it :).

On a more serious note: it was tested both for FF and APS-C on SlrGear.com (external link), so why not have a look there?

Certainly on APS-C it is an excellent lens, and IME usable at F/1.8, very good at F/2 and excellent from about F/2.2 to F/2.4. Even so I sold mine because it wasn't fast enough :), but only after I got a replacement of course.

I reckon it is better than the 85 F/1.8, but I may step on toes saying that :).

Kind regards, Wim ;)

Great lens, way underrated. Love it on my 5D. Posted my first impressions a while back here:
