Canon 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens
The Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens is a fantastic medium length lens. The option if the 85mm 1.2 is out of the budget. Great for portraits and super fast at f/1.8, the quality of the blur with this lens is sublime.

- Very Fast Lens Review by Que
This is a great portrait lens, it give beautiful out of focus backgrounds. It is super-fast but beware at F1.8 your focusing needs to be perfect. Slightly off and the entire shot is very soft. For me this lens has a sweet spot at F2 to F2.2 where it is just magnificent. This lens is also great as a fast indoor sports lens, but again watch your DOF. I would recommend this lens to anyone that wants a very well-priced fast portrait lens.
