Buy Canon EF-85mm f/1.8 USM Lens


Canon's EF 85mm f/1.8 USM is a short-telephoto lens that features a compressed perspective for attractive images. Its f/1.8 maximum aperture allows for subject isolation and narrow depth of field methods, as well as operating in low-light environments. A Super Spectra coating has been sprayed to individual elements to help produce outstanding colour fidelity and contrast while reducing reflections, lens flare, and ghosting. Furthermore, a ring-type USM is used to provide speedy and quiet autofocus as well as full-time manual focus adjustment.

Key Features

  • The portrait-length of short-telephoto prime is designed to provide full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, though it may also be used with APS-C models for a 136mm equivalent focal length.
  • Working in low-light circumstances is made easier with the bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, which also gives you more control over the depth of field when using selective focus techniques.
  • To provide fast, precise, and silent autofocus as well as full-time manual focus override, a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) is used. Furthermore, the front of the lens does not spin during focusing, making it easier to use polarising and graded filters.
  • Individual pieces have been coated with Super Spectra to reduce ghosting and flare for improved contrast and colour neutrality when working in bright light.
  • The rounded eight-blade diaphragm gives a pleasing out-of-focus quality, making shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques more effective.
