    Asking $170

    For sale is a Canon FD 85mm f1.8 lens. The lens is fast and I find it very easy to focus. The focus ring is easier to move than some of my stiffer lenses and I like the way it feels. A very nice portrait lens or fast short telephoto.

    I have purchased a brand new 85mm f1.4 lens and no longer need this one. This lens is a classic and is in good condition.

    The glass is clean and clear with no problems. The aperture is nice. Body shows signs of use but no issues.

    I have exact same lens. This lens is great and it's pretty compact and light. Good sharpness even wide open (when you nail focus). At f1.8, I am able to isolate the entire person not just head and shoulders. I use it w/E-PL2 quite a bit and recently have been wondering how would it work on Nex w/peaking and 1.5 crop (for tighter spaces)...In the film days, 85mm used to be the classic portrait FL so 85mm lenses were manufactured specifically for that purpose hence better looking bokeh than 50mm legacy lenses.
