Canon's First 85mm L-series Lens with IS Capability.

The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM marks a new level of agility in a medium-telephoto lens as Canon's first 85mm L-series lens to incorporate Image Stabilization. It delivers up to 4* stops (CIPA Standard) of stabilization, making handheld operation possible in a vastly increased number of scenarios from portraiture to snapshots and everywhere in between.

* Based on CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards. Testing performed using the EOS-1D X Mark II SLR camera. The number of stops may vary based on the camera model used.

Large, Bright f/1.4 Aperture.

The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM features a large f/1.4 maximum aperture, which produces a shallow depth of field for beautiful background blur, captures at a fast shutter speed, a bright viewfinder image as well as easy operation in low-light situations. Combined with its built-in IS, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM helps capture images in a variety of environments where other lenses may require the use of a flash or alternate lighting source.

Image Stabilization at up to 4* Stops of Shake Correction.

For consistently sharp results, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM features an Image Stabilizer system that provides significant shake reduction for up to 4* shutter speed steps. This helps provide reliable handheld performance and clear image detail in low-light situations or at lower ISOs. Because of Image Stabilization, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM can also help minimize the need for a tripod.

* Based on CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards. Testing performed using the EOS-1D X Mark II SLR camera. The number of steps may vary based on the camera model used.

GMo Aspherical Lens with Air Sphere Coating Technology.

The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is engineered to help render crisp and clear images. For high-contrast images that remain sharp from corner to corner of the composition, it features a molded glass (GMo) aspherical lens, and the Image Stabilizer lens is coated with Canon's Air Sphere Coating (ASC) technology for significantly reduced flare and ghosting from reflected light.

Dust- and Water-resistant Professional-grade Design.

Built to L-series specifications, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM not only offers optical excellence but is designed to perform in even the most challenging environments. It delivers a dust- and water-resistant construction with seals around the switch panel, the focus rings and the mount. The surface of the lens even features a smudge-resistant fluorine coating that repels water and oil and can easily be cleaned with a dry cloth.

Circular Aperture (9 blades) for Beautiful Bokeh.

Thanks to its 9-blade, circular aperture, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is capable of gorgeous, evocative out-of-focus areas and soft backgrounds. With an incredible level of control over background blur, the 9-blade circular aperture helps create intimacy and intensity in both photos and videos for impactful results.

33.5 in./85cm Minimum Focusing Distance.

With a minimum focusing distance of 33.5 in./85cm, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM enables operation close to the subject, perfect for intimate portraits, headshots and detail work.

High-speed AF Using Ring USM Technology and Rear Group Focusing.

To help capture every movement, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM features a fast and near-silent AF system. It uses an inner focusing ring USM (ultrasonic motor) system that works with a high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithms to help deliver precise, lightning-fast performance. For even more refinement, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM offers full-time manual focus as well.
