    all I have to say is :eek3: the 85mm will definitely be the next lens in my bag, super sharp images!

    Working on uploading the examples.

    I was a little worried when I had read some reviews on it.. but I was pretty happy with how sharp, and wide it is on my 35mm body. I don't think I'd like it as well on a crop body.

    you got any pics with the 85 wide open? I am considering this and the 135mm as a replacement for my 70-200...or maybe just the f/2.8 version of the 70-200

    not a fan of the 20 personally, but the 85 is probably the steal out of the canon lineup

    He looks... white.

    Bokeh is great, though.
