Canon 85mm 1.8


Would like to see if anyone has taken this onto the streets and got a few snaps. Most of the samples I've seen are only at 1.8 but I want to see how it performs at different aperture settings as well

Dont use it on the street as currently have no time but use it indoors taking baby snaps, at F1.8 its very sharp but at F4 its insane, easily the sharpest lens Ive used (and Ive used some very good lenses). Love it.

I dont really use mine much these days, in fact im looking to trade it for a 35F2 but its a fantastic lens to own.

Here's one of the last shots i took with it. I do have others i can post but will need to go through some shots and track them down.
