The Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens stands out as a premium short telephoto prime, particularly well-suited for portraiture applications. This L-series lens boasts a sophisticated optical design, featuring a glass-molded aspherical element that significantly reduces spherical aberrations and distortion, resulting in enhanced sharpness and clarity. The inclusion of Air Sphere Coating (ASC) on individual elements effectively combats lens flare and ghosting, ensuring superior contrast and color accuracy, especially in challenging backlit scenarios.

Key Features:

Versatile Portraiture Lens:

Tailored for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, this portrait-length prime lens delivers exceptional performance. It can also be used with APS-C models, providing a 136mm equivalent focal length for capturing striking portraits.

Exceptional Low-Light Performance:

The impressively fast f/1.4 maximum aperture grants extensive control over depth of field, making it ideal for selective focus techniques. This feature not only enhances creative possibilities but also facilitates shooting in low-light conditions.

Optical Precision:

The incorporation of a glass-molded aspherical element effectively minimizes distortion and spherical aberrations, contributing to superior image sharpness and clarity.

Advanced Coating Technology:

The Air Sphere Coating (ASC) reduces backlit flaring and ghosting, ensuring optimal light transmission and high contrast, especially in challenging lighting conditions.

Swift and Accurate Autofocus:

The ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), paired with optimized focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU, enables fast, precise, and quiet autofocus. The lens also offers full-time manual focus override for refined control.

Effective Image Stabilization:

The four-stop optical image stabilization system minimizes the impact of camera shake, providing greater flexibility for handheld shooting, even in challenging conditions.

Artistic Rendering:

The rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality, enhancing the appeal of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Durable Construction:

As a distinguished member of the L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture, ensuring reliable performance in various environmental conditions.

Fluorine Coating:

Exposed lens elements are coated with fluorine, offering protection to the optical system, resisting smudges and fingerprints, and facilitating easier cleaning.
