Description

A short telephoto focal length, combined with a large maximum aperture and fast autofocus speed, make the EF 85 mm f/1.8 USM an ideal optic for any photographer shooting portraiture.

The EF 85 mm f/1.8 USM produces images that are sharp and clear at all apertures. A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out-of-focus regions a softer, more even feel, and lets in-focus subjects stand out against a blurred background. The lens features a non-rotating front element during focusing, enabling specialist filters to be used.

  • A practical and portability telephoto lens

  • Large f/1.8 aperture

    A large maximum aperture of f/1.8 lets photographers shoot hand-held in difficult, low-light conditions, as well as restrict depth-of-field for creative effects.
  • Compressed perspective in portraiture

    The short telephoto focal length of the lens slightly compresses perspective, reducing the size of prominent facial features for a flattering result.
  • Ultrasonic focusing

    A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
  • Super Spectra coating

    Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate color balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting - a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
  • Integration with E-TTL II flash metering

    The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.
