Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens to bring out a subject Great bokeh. Only good to concentrate on one subject. Everything else becomes blurry.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wonderful images...when it works I’ve had this lens for several years, and I have a serious love/hate relationship with it. Focus is so incredibly inconsistent. The only time I can get the majority of my images in focus is by using live view and magnify the image in the screen. Even then it’s not 100%. I recently spent several days trying to microfocus adjust this lens and nothing I tried seemed to work. It didn’t matter the aperture I used. If I made minor adjustments to fix backfocus the lens would shift to a horrible front focus. Manual focus was no better. That being said, it does provide images close in quality to what my L glass produces. I just wish I could trust it enough to use it. I just can’t justify having to use live view 100% of the time with this lens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I Love Canon products! The glass was scratched. I plan on asking Canon about this. I bought the lense used and didn't see anything in the description stating that the lens would be scratched.
