Distinguished by its fast design and IS capabilities, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM from Canon is a short telephoto prime well-suited to portraiture applications. As an L-series lens, it is characterized by a sophisticated optical layout that includes one glass-moulded aspherical element to greatly reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and clarity. Individual elements also feature an Air Sphere Coating (ASC) to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and colour fidelity in backlit situations.
Complementing the optical attributes, this lens also incorporates a four stop-effective optical image stabilization system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) also affords quick and accurate autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override for fine-tuned control. Additionally, as with all L-series lenses, this 85mm f/1.4 has a dust- and weather-resistant construction, as well as a fluorine coating on exposed elements, to benefit its use in harsh environmental conditions.
f/1.4 Maximum aperture, prime 85mm focal length, full-frame, circular 9-blade diaphragm. All these properties create fantastic compression.
Want to have that professional close-up shot where the subject is tack sharp and the background is completely blown out with a smooth blur, and maybe even with some circular light? Then a fixed/prime telephoto lens with a fast circular bladed aperture is what you require. With a short telephoto 85mm focal length, wide-open maximum aperture of f/1.4, and circular 9-blade diaphragm, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens will make your photos stand out.
Powerful 4-stop optical image stabilisation
The Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens features an impressive 4-stop optical IS (image stabilisation) system, a first for an L-series 85mm prime. The system will greatly reduce camera shake induced blur to deliver sharp results when shooting in low-light situations or at slower shutter speeds.
GMo aspherical lens with Air Sphere coating
The optical construction of the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM features a glass moulded aspherical lens and an Air Sphere coating. These greatly help deliver high-contrast images with edge to edge sharpness and minimal flare and ghosting.
Protective fluorine coating and weather resistant design
The Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens is built to last. Featuring a dust- and water-resistant construction with seals, users can confidently shoot in bad weather conditions. Thanks a protective fluorine coating on the front element, the lens can easily be cleaned with a soft dry cloth.
Swift and near-silent USM focus motor
The Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM features a swift, accurate, and near-silent USM AF system with manual focus override. The system that works with a high-speed processor with optimized AF algorithms to help deliver precise, lightning-fast performance.
