Amazing bokeh at f2. Amazing sharpness at f4-5.6.
There's also something I just like about the portraits with this focal length.
But, it's a little soft at f2 so I usually shoot at f2.8.
It's not versatile. It's limited to only shooting portraits.
And I think the 70-200 f2.8 L IS II now matches it for image quality.
Great for portraits as you can really blurr the background and focus sharp on the subject. Also perfect for standing back and not being intrusive to your subjects, this stealth lens takes such amazingly breathtaking pictures. It doesn't draw attention to you like the giant white lens tubes.
You need to know where you are going and what kind of pictures you will be taking before putting this lens on your camera or else you will be swapping out prime lenses a lot. It has a somewhat narrow field, and it really isn't for long distances, but for any subjects from 10 to 100 feet it is great. The low-light capability is fabulous! You will need to steady it on something when shooting as it does have some weight and swing to it.
When used with the right technique and shot wide open, the lens offers just the right level of background compression and subject isolation in my opinion. The focal length almost forces you to maintain the right subject distance and as a result, almost the entire subject is in sharp focus and rest of the background is just beautifully blurred. The bokeh is just not only melty but also has a beautiful character to it. It looks very pleasant to my eye. The lens produces stunning contrast right out of the camera, beautiful colors and corner sharpness even when shooting wide open at f/2.
The focus locking is so perfect - the lens never hunts on my body. The weight is just right too and with a wide aperture, a lot of creative possibilities are afforded on the shoot.
If you shoot people and are looking for a nice keeper lens that will give you a lot of mileage over a long period of time, you are looking at a winner here.
PS - Too bad there doesnt seem to be a way for me to upload any sample shots here on Amazon reviews. Such a shame.
