Classic 85mm Portrait Focal Length
85mm lenses have always been a crowd favourite for portrait and fashion photographers because they have a compression that can create a more flattering look, perfect for capturing images of people.
Super Wide f/1.2 Lens Aperture
An excellent choice for low-light conditions, the 85mm has a f/1.2 aperture for better light transmission. It’s not just about being brighter though; the large aperture combined with the short telephoto focal length creates a super shallow depth-of-field that allows you to focus (pun intended) the attention of your audience.
9-Bladed Circular Aperture
If beautiful looking bokeh is what you’re looking for the Canon RF 85mm won’t disappoint, with a 9-bladed circular aperture that turns point light sources into giant soft orbs when out of focus.
USM for Fast and Accurate Focus
Using a Ring-type USM system allows the 85mm f/1.2 to have snappy focus speeds that are super accurate. Combined with Canon’s new Eye-AF firmware this makes it even easier you can capture more in focus shots to increase your hit rate.
