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.

Ultrasonic Focusing

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.
