Make every shot breathtaking with the multiple award-winning Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Lens. Fast, ultra-sharp and capable of extraordinary bokeh, this short telephoto prime is one of the best portrait lenses ever produced – but with the remarkable addition of image stabilisation.
With its constant f/1.4 maximum aperture, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens offers shallow depth of field and outstanding low-light performance. These are further enhanced by a 9-blade circular aperture design—which produces stunningly smooth background blur to emphasise your subjects—and a built-in image stabiliser. Uncommon in prime lenses, this feature counteracts camera shake by the equivalent of four stops, enabling even sharper results when you shoot handheld or in dim light – perfect for indoor or outdoor lifestyle portrait sessions.
Canon has expertly engineered its 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Lens to deliver peak optical performance. As well as a glass-moulded aspherical element (which minimises distortion and aberrations to deliver superior sharpness, clarity and colour fidelity), the lens features Canon's multi-layered Air Sphere Coating for reduced ghosting/flare and optimum contrast – even in backlit conditions.
Don’t let those perfect moments get away. Powered by a ring-type ultrasonic motor, autofocus in the Canon 85mm f/1.4L IS lens works brilliantly fast and in near silence – ideal for keeping up with fast-moving scenes and for shooting candid moments disturbance-free. A full-time manual focus override function lets you fine tune your focusing when required.
Like all Canon L-Series lenses, the Canon 85mm f/1.4L IS lens is built for even the most challenging shooting environments. The lens’ robust structure is dust and weather resistant, and fluorine coated front and rear lens surfaces offer additional protection as well as easier cleaning.
