EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
If you want a highly practical medium telephoto lens with superb delineation and portability, the EF 85mm f1.8 USM is for you. Images are sharp and clear at all apertures. The lens has been designed to give beautiful background blur so your creativity can be fulfilled with this lens.
Practical and Portability Telephoto Lens
Virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out-of-focus regions a softer, more even feel. In-focus subjects stand out against a blurred background.
Large f/1.8 Aperture
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 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.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting.
Super Spectra Coating
Ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast, suppress flare and ghosting by absorbing light that might be reflected off internal lens elements and image 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.
