Well make prefect for the Canon SL1, the color isn't prefect but for the price I have seen worst for 3 time the price. I love the build quality and it is one of the few lens around a $100 has really shape edge in the price range I have used. Manual focusing take time but the lens shine in low light on a tripod with liveveiw so you can see how in focus you are. Overall really nice for the money Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 28, 2016
    The aspherical multi-coated optics ensure bright, razor sharp images. It has a nicely damped and rubber-clad focus ring, allowing for smooth focus pulls and precision focusing. Due to its internal focusing mechanism, the physical size of the lens remains constant.
    Whether you are an amateur photographer, or a professional looking for an affordable portrait lens, the Vivitar 85mm F/1.8 is the perfect choice.
    The Vivitar 85mm F1.8 Aspherical Lens opens up new photographic opportunities you'd never get with a zoom. The focal length and aperture make it a great portrait lens. When shooting in bright conditions with fast shutter speeds and low ISOs, you'll create beautiful subject separation, and backgrounds which melt away into soft colors.
    The Vivitar 85mm lens is also a great choice for DSLR videographers. The lens mounted aperture ring works just like a professional video camera.
    The lens comes with a removable lens hood, caps, and pouch, along with a five year warranty.

    Good performer, low price

    This Vivitar appears to be f2.0 wide open, When compared to the canon 85mm fd 1.8, it matches exactly when the canon is stopped down to f-2.0,( exposure, sharpness), however the Vivitar has better contrast. I have not compared higher f-stops as of yet. This lens is great on the pana, g6, gh2-3, or apsc, and works fine on fullframe (5d2) no vignette at all, even with hood attached. Focus barrel is smooth for 75% of the rotation, the last 25% seems to be slightly rubbing something, feels as if there's less grease on that portion of the internal mech, I've heard of this same issue on the Opteka 85mm, which I am guessing is the same lens, however the rubbing doesn't effect focusing, but you do feel and barely hear it. When using a follow focus it's less noticeable. This lens has a short throw, not ideal for a 1st AC, but it's workable with practice, I'm also hoping that with some working in, it will lessen or eliminate the rubbing all together, only time will tell. The lens body is... 4/5 maranfilms - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Value for the Price-Recommended budget lens

    I'm very happy with this purchase. The biggest bargain lens for canon dslr shooters on a budget has been the "Nifty Fifty" canon 50mm 1f/.8 lens. I also place this 85mm f/1.8 lens in the Must-have arsenal (particularly for portraits and video). So many people complain about how "cheap" the lens is. But in truth it's way more solidly built than that "nifty fifty" available now- hands down, and I find the focus ring to be nice and smooth (and a good width). I have read a lot of reviews about the 'weird' f-stops available on this lens. Everyone who mentioned that failed to mention that you actually have more control of the diaphragm, you can actually gently adjust your aperture between f-stops manually! I think this is wonderful feature that is very little discussed. I have a tight budget - For Primes, I mostly rely on manual lenses with canon eos adapters. So to find a nice affordable modern glass in this focal length and better quality... 5/5 DatArtMan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    5/5 svtcontour - See all my reviews This review is from: Vivitar 85mm f/1.8 Portrait Lens (for Canon EOS Cameras) (Electronics) Well this is five stars given considering its price. Its not that far off from my Canon 85mm F1.8 in terms of quality. Maybe one step down IMO but hey I mean its so cheap. I think its great overall. For people that have issues with the image quality, not sure what the issue is but mine is pretty damn sharp and good contrast and CA is not too bad. Not as good as my canon but they again its a fraction of the cost. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 10, 2015
