I am on my second EF85 1.8 now - sold the first one and regretted it sorely afterwards. Bought a new one from This is indeed a brilliant portrait lens, and it's small size means that it is not too intimidating to your sitters, as opposed to for instance the EF70-200 2.8 or 4.0. delivers within one week's time in Denmark, and have fairly low prices (€359 for the EF85 + €20 shipping).

Best regards
