Canon 85mm f/1.8 – Amazing Bokeh

Trying to be consistent on making videos and uping’ my video game, here is another one I have added to my youtube channel.

This video I show examples that I have gotten with the 85mm f/1.8 Canon lens. I own two Canon lenses as some of you may know from previous blogs. The 35mm f/2 and the 85mm. I love the sharpness and the bokeh the 85mm has to offer and for the price, you can’t beat it in my opinion. Sometime I will probably jump to the 85mm f/1.4 L lens just to have the extra stop and the even faster autofocus.


Do you all have a lens that you love and swear by?

I am always looking for new lenses..(don’t tell my wife. HA) In all seriousness, I love finding great lenses that are in decent price ranges, as I am sure everyone is. I say that because I feel like some people jump straight to the L series lenses, like the 50mm 1.2 and the 85mm 1.4 and never look at the options that will give you great results for cheaper.


Let me know your thoughts here or in my youtube comment section on lens suggestions or what you think of this lens.


As usual until next time… stay, ON THE SHUTTER!
