A short telephoto prime lens that’s perfect for portraits, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is designed for full-frame DSLRs but compatible with crop sensors, where it will provide a 136mm equivalent focal length. The f/1.4 aperture is fast. It performs during low-light applications, and the nine-blades provide beautiful bokeh during selective focus techniques.
The lens is constructed with 14 elements divided into 10 groups and includes one glass-molded aspherical element which takes care of spherical aberrations. Canon’s Air Sphere Coating covers each lens element and eliminates lens flare and ghosting during bright or backlit conditions.
Autofocus is fast, quiet, and accurate since Canon’s ring-type Ultrasonic Motor is enhanced by focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU, which ensure that you get the clearest images while using the full-time manual focus override. You’ll also get up to four stops of camera shake reduction.
Like all L-series lenses, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is weather sealed, so you’ll be able to use this lens no matter what surprise nature brings. The front and rear lens elements are coated with fluorine to minimize smudges and fingerprints, further ensuring that your images will be clear. This lens has a 2.79 feet minimum focusing distance, a maximum magnification of 0.12x, a 28° 30-inch angle of view, and is compatible with 77 mm filters.
