    "I love this lens...My wife loves it...It focus's fast, for a lens this size....If you compared this to the 5 or 600 nikon prime which is almost the cost of a car this lens isn't as sharp, but it's 1399 not 13000.00... Buy it you will be happy with it The only reason it got 4 starts is from the weight and the inability to use the 5.6 on a crop body and I have had 2 copies and it'sn't a defective lens...do your research on this lens"

    "Very easy to use...my wife loved it...The auto focus is simple and quick....I would definately recomend this lens if you need a decent telephoto lens, I would also recomend a tripod since it can be a bit tricky to get a clear shot since the lens lacks IS"

    "It is fun to use...I love this baby...I've a fair collection of primes to compare it to, some of which are L glass, and I've got some great L zooms as well; yet for portraits, I inevitably turn to this specific lens as it outperforms everything else I own in the successful shooting methodologies I find myself returning to over and over...Frankly, at the price, I think it is perfectly fair to characterize this lens as a "must-have"; if you're ever going to shoot a portrait, trust me, this is the lens you want (even over the 85mm f/1.2L, which has far too narrow a depth of field for most reasonable portraiture, though you can't beat it for light-gathering"

    "This 85 is great...The lens is great...A lens this fast has a razor thin depth of focus so you're going to need to be very careful shooting with it...Of note - when turning the focus ring manually, the focus ring bobbles a bit (like its not "screwed on tightly" - kind of like the sound of batteries in an old remote control where the end connections have weakened a bit - though tight enough to work, they "bobble around" a bit inside"
