Canon Sumire Prime CN-E 85mm T1.3 Overview

The Canon 85mm Sumire Prime T2.2 is a fast T1.3 lens that is suitable for full frame and Super35 sensor formats. It has a PL to EF changeable mount, making it a versatile choice. The Sumire series offers a cinematic look with its subtle rendering of subjects, beautiful bokeh, and impressive low-light performance.

Interchangeable PL Mount

Offers wide compatibility with a range of PL-mount 35mm full-frame and Super35 cameras.

The Sumire primes can be changed to an EF mount at any authorized service facility.

Focus Breathing Suppression

The lens is designed to minimize focus breathing, providing image stability even when bokeh effects occur when refocusing.

Nuanced Look

The Sumire Prime Lens series features a nuanced look as the lens aperture approaches its maximum setting.

This subtly modifies the textural renderings of the human facial close-up and a pleasing bokeh.

Artistically Pleasing Image Rendering

The lens features a large-diameter aspheric lens and anomalous dispersion glass, for high-resolution image reproduction from image center to image edge.

The lens produces warm colour tones that help to softly capture facial expressions, and it shares a unified colour balance with other Canon Cinema lenses.

Soft, Natural Bokeh Effects

The 85mm has an 11-blade iris that produces artistic and beautiful out-of-focus areas, creating a more three-dimensional bokeh.

The use of an odd number of blades helps reduce flaring of specular highlights.

Consistent Torque

The focus and iris rings are designed to maintain a consistent amount of resistance and operating torque to help provide the camera operator or assistant with predictable lens operation.

Unified Features

The Sumire Prime Lens series features a unified front diameter (114mm), rotation angle (300°), and gear position on the focus and iris rings.

Front Filter Thread

All lenses in the series except the 14mm accept a 105mm diameter threaded filter in the front of the lens.

Phosphorescent Focus Marks

Focus scales marked in feet are displayed on both sides of the lens.

To improve visibility in dim light conditions, marks with phosphorescent paint have been adopted for right-side viewing.
