I have the older non-STM version of this lens. It's a pretty great value.

For those of us with APS-C cameras, this makes for a good portrait lens. It's not very good for landscapes.

Awesome lens. I bought it for the same price a couple months ago and am very happy with it.

This is a great price on an excellent lens that performs well in low light and takes great portrait shots. Even after 11% tax it's $95 new so I'm gonna bite. Thanks, OP!

Looked into it a bit, deals-all-year is generally accepted as a safe reseller, but they are definitely grey market. They technically don't come with a Canon warranty, but historically Canon hasn't been too strict about enforcement, so you could probably still warranty it out

I'm on the fence about buying this lens. I own an older Canon ef macro 50mm f2.8. It's heavy and loud, but it gets the job done. I purchased it cheap for macro purposes.

Now I'm starting to take outdoor portraits, and have been using my 18-135 IS kit lens with my 80d to shoot with. I'll probably be doing more indoors pretty soon as well. Do I stick with what I have, or would this be a preferable alternative to either of the 2 mentioned?

I know none of these lenses are super top shelf,.... but I'm not there,... yet!

Thanks everyone!

You may want to look at a 85mm fast prime. Personally, I use a XF 16mm 1.4 (but you have to get really close which can be awkward) or a 50mm f1.1 and I do just fine for portraiture.

Price is an issue as well. I'm not at a point where I'm going to be spending a bundle on great lenses. I do appreciate your recommendations though!

I'm really just comparing what I have to this lens exclusively. (Unless there's another lens I'm missing in the price neighborhood)

My 50mm 1.1 was $130, but it is manual focus only. https://www.sainsonic.com/product...4480948555

Looks like its EOS-M, so you'd have to adapter it. I think the Canon adapter is pretty cheap.

You can't use an EOS-M specific lens with an EF, regardless of adapter or not.

yeah, I bought one from ebay 2 months ago from a different seller for about $98.
They claim it's new, but there's no warranty paperwork, and the label on the box is missing.

Not paying sales tax on a grey market product. I would rather bite the refurb for the same money from canon when it comes up on that deal!

This is the answer when asked the warranty!

"This lens comes in the original Canon box.
It does not come with a Canon warranty as it is an import model lens.
The lens comes with a 30-day labor 1-year parts warranty through an authorized Canon service provider.
If you have any questions, please contact us anytime.

Thank You "
