Testing Out EF85mm f1.8 USM for the New 2007

First of all I would like to greet all my avid readers a Happy New Year, a Happy 2007!

My first prime lens, the EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens, according to reviews produces sharp pictures and performs well in low light conditions. The AF is fast and produces beautiful bokeh when shot as wide as f1.8.

Let’s see some samples of the pictures I took:

OK, so this one was actually taken using the EF-S 17-85mm IS USM, not the 85mm prime. The latter was too long to accomodate us all in the picture given the limited space in our kitchen.

Yet, you know what? I’m not yet convinced. This lens (85mm) has still a long way to go to convince me to really become my favorite lens. It has yet to prove its superiority (actually) over the 17-85mm zoom.
