A highly practical medium telephoto lens with superb delineation and portability, the Opteka 85mm lens produces sharp and clear images at all apertures. Employing a re-designed optical system that includes Opteka's exclusive HD super multi coating, the 85mm f/1.8 inherits its predecessor’s ultra-fast f/1.8 maximum aperture and rounded six-blade diaphragm for superior depth-of-field control and background blur (bokeh). Engineered to inspire new levels of creativity and artistry, the Opteka 85mm f/1.8 will unleash the full potential of your digital camera in the studio or in the field. And because the front lens group does not rotate during focusing, special filter effects are not affected. Best of all, the standard zoom lens with its natural angle of view and perspective, captures the subject plainly, making it excellent for portraits and images that require a natural depth of field.
One of the advantages of the Opteka 85mm is its build quality. The materials are glass and metal, there is no plastic used in this lens. It deliberately does not contain any electronics. It is 100% manual. The less parts it has, the less chances that something will break down. Opteka's super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting, a common problem with digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Update: After heavy usage, this lens is still amazing. I'm adding more photos to this review, as well as a link to my flickr album that will be updated with photos taken with this lens.
Thank you for reading my review and happy shooting. :)
The focus ring is fairly stiff, but I see this as a positive. It is much easier to get a finely tuned focus this way rather than a very loose focus ring. It is consistently stiff throughout the focus range.
The lens itself fit perfectly on my 70d, no issues there at all. It is compact, yet feels very sturdy and solid.
Update: More than a year later, and I am still loving this lens. This is my go to lens for any portraits. The images are clear and sharp and provide beautiful bokeh. Highly recommend this lens. If you are still having any doubts....don't, just buy it already!
Again, for this price, you won't find anything better. I am sure there are better 85mm lenses, but you will pay 3-10 times as much also.
My one complaint is that the bag it came in wasnt very padded, so Ill probably have to get a nicer bag to keep it safe.
