    In recently purchased the Canon R6 as I had read it has excellent focusing – I have a review on here. I needed a few lenses and decided on the 85mm Macro ISD STM. And I wasn’t disappointed.

    The camera lens doubles up as a portrait lens and a macro lens. Very useful.

    1. Its light
    2. Auto-focus for both distance and very close up is first class
    3. No aberration as I can see
    4. F2 so great for low light
    5. Nice crisp images.

    1. No lens hood (Canon don’t provide ideal these with the cheaper end lens though you can buy them, but expensive.
    2. All plastic but again I didn’t see Andy disadvantage.

    It’s a great lens in many respects: excellent image quality and really good image stabilisation. I was able to shoot macro shots handheld and focus bracket up to 20 shots at the same time.

    But – and it’s a big but…….

    I found that the focus appeared to get stuck at certain focussing distances and it would fail to lock on to obvious subjects. This was especially the case with macro. If it found something a fair distance away like 10m it would then refuse to focus any closer on the flower in front of me, even if I adjusted the focus limiting switch or tried manual override. Quite annoying and I can imagine it being more annoying with event photography.

    So far so good with this lens.

    Images are super sharp and vibrant, nice contrast.

    Focus is great, super quick, however motor can be a touch noisy and it sometimes hunts unneccessarily but the focus limiter switch will help with this.

    I mostly use this for lifestyle/commercial images in restaurants and the macro ability is fantastic. I prefer an 85mm over a 100mm dedicated macro as it’s a more natural focal length I think so this lens is perfect. I used to use the previous 85mm 1.8 with extension tubes which wasn’t ideal.

    Have tested this for portraits and its fantastic, pin sharp focus with the eye detect AF. Lovely bokeh and seperation.

    All in all a fantastic lens for photos on the R system. If you don’t need the 1.4 then this for nearly a quarter of the price is a no brainer.

    OK it’s not a f1.4.or f1.2 but check your bank balance. f2 is plenty fast for most applications and of course it has highly effective IS built in, so even great on the EOS R.

    Handles well, it’s sharp and although not true macro, focusses close enough for most pictures. Love it. Perfect cat lens.
