The Sentiment Analysis of key attributes from the reviews is summarized as follows:
The Tamron SP 85mm F/1.8 is the world's first* 85mm fast-aperture lens with image stabilization. Its unique design allows us to include our VC (Vibration Compensation) system-without the lens becoming too large or heavy. What's more, our SP 85mm F/1.8 delivers edge-to-edge viewfinder brightness for ease of composition and superior low-light performance. The fast aperture of the F/1.8 also offers the perfect balance of subject sharpness and bokeh, that dreamy blur which separates your portrait subject from the background. The SP 85mm F/1.8 is the world's first* lens with a fixed focal length of 85mm and a fast aperture of F/1.8 that's equipped with the VC system. Camera movement-often too minute to be perceptible to the photographer-is the leading cause of unpleasant photographs. In addition, newer DSLR cameras with higher pixel densities are more susceptible to subtle camera shake. This technology makes it possible to take photographs handheld in dim light and to make optimal use of slower shutter speeds and increased depth-of-field without extreme increase of the camera's sensor sensitivity (ISO equivalent). This is especially important in portraiture because lighting is often low and the photographer needs the spontaneity of not using a tripod or disruptive flash units.

the experience was pleasing and invisible. That is, I didn't waste any time trying to adjust or accommodate what I did with this lens; I just put it on the camera and went to work.
It is a versatile lens that holds its own for travel reports or landscape photography, but due to its high brightness, it can also be used for portraits
