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
    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 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.
    The lens comes with a removable lens hood, caps, and pouch, along with a five year warranty.
    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.

    Vivitar

    Reasonably good lens, good deal for the price.

    I received the Vivitar 500mm f/8 Telephoto Lens for Nikon today. It is pretty much what I expected. It is a manual lens which means that you can only use the camera in manual mode so no auto-focus and it does not tell the camera the f/stop or other information. That isn't a problem as I will use it primarily for astronomy pictures and it will join my other manual lenses I use for that task. The lens is really more like a small telescope having what appears to be a single (probably doublet) lens at the front. It does not contain multiple lens elements as you would find in other telephoto lenses. The primary problem with the lens is caused by this lens design and that is that the colors do not focus all at the same point. This leads to blue/violet 'fringes' around bright objects or even dark objects against a bright background. I took a few pictures as soon as I received it and in general they looked pretty good. However, on one particular image that was of a black bird on a... 4/5 Z-Field (North Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    5/5 Kindle Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 85mm f/1.8 Portrait Lens (for Nikon Cameras) (Camera) I am absolutely in love with this lens! I haven't used a fully manual lens in about 8 years when I worked in a studio, and I have been missing out of all of the control I get in my photos. Images are perfectly sharp and amazing resolution. I am completely impressed with this lens. The price is what sold me. I bought it as an entry way/lens test-out to an actual nikon 85 mm and this lens is perfect for what I need it for. I am completely satisfied and will be buying Vivitar glass in the future. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 27, 2015

    Good Alternative 85mm Lens

    4/5 D.C. "Doc" Cormier - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 85mm f/1.8 Portrait Lens (for Nikon Cameras) (Camera) This is a very nice alternative to the much more expensive 85mm lenses from Nikon, at about one-tenth the price. However, it lacks the touted 28.5 degree field of view. By actual measurement, I get about 12 degrees. Nevertheless, it still makes an excellent portrait and special-purpose lens. There is a slight amount of chromatic and spherical aberration that can be almost eliminated by stopping down the iris. Thanks Vivitar for saving me a lot of money.

    This lens is great for portrait photography

    5/5 mahnoor - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 85mm f/1.8 Portrait Lens (for Nikon Cameras) (Camera) This lens is great for portrait photography , take sharp photos with nice Bokeh. Price is low and that's what matters most to me as a hobbyist but if you have budget of $400 then go for the nikon or cannon. Nice video quality especially in night.Pros:* Low price* Sharp photos* Great Bokeh* Great performance in Low light for video and photosCons:* "Only" works in Manuel mode.( You can not use any kind mode at all)* no auto focus ( kind of rough to focus with hands)* it is heavy & bulky* little bit of chromatic aberrations( can be solved with speed light/flash light)* Funny kind of F stop( Works great up to F10 )Final thoughts :If you know how to shoot in Manuel and you are a hobbyist then this is best deal for you. I Highly recommended this lens. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 5, 2016

    VIVITAR

    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.

    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?)
