The 85mm f1.8 is incredibly sharp and the bokeh is pleasant too, I think of it as L-class glass even though it isn't actually. The lens is just awesome, I regularly shoot it wide open at ISO 1600 with very good results. Absolutely stunning portrait lens too. This lens is way underrated IMHO, and I say that as someone who owns a lot of high end fast Canon glass (it's not on the caliber of my 135mm f2.0, which is just a ridiculous lens, but for a third the price, the value is there bigtime).
