The perfect package, this fast L-series telephoto with advanced optical engineering is perfect for creative portrait photography.
This fast portrait lens delivers clear, sharp images full of contrast and colour with razor sharp detail, ideal for high-resolution sensors. Air Sphere Coating (ASC) helps supress internal ghosting and flare while a large f/1.4 aperture produces a shallow depth of field.
A fast aperture of f/1.4 allows precise focusing and faster shutter speeds even in low light. The shallow depth-of-field afforded by a wide maximum aperture gives pleasing bokeh, adding extra depth to portraits.
Challenging light can make or break a good picture. The 4-stops of image stabilisation will help negate camera shake and give photographers and filmmakers working in difficult shooting conditions an added advantage, just when they need it most.
Thanks to latest AF technology the lens reacts quickly and accurately, allowing near-silent focusing. Clear focus markings and full AF compatibility with all EOS systems makes this lens the perfect companion for photographers and filmmakers.
A durable construction including a shock absorbing front barrel gives high levels of performance in all conditions. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens elements help protect against dust and moisture while precise distance markings allow for E-TTL calculations when using flash.
A camera is only as good as the lens it is connected to, and all L-series lenses have been engineered to perform at the highest level. Full AF compatibility with Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensors means this lens will deliver outstanding results in both stills and video.
The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is highly versatile and a perfect lens for a variety of assignments. From flattering super-sharp portraits to fast-moving lifestyle situations, see why Canon storytellers always pack this lens in their kitbags.
