Capture portraits in superb detail and live for the story
The fast Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens delivers clear, sharp images full of contrast and colour with razor sharp detail, ideal for high-resolution sensors. Air Sphere Coating (ASC) helps supress internal ghosting and flare while a large f/1.4 aperture produces a shallow depth of field.
Large, bright aperture for a focused performance in all light levels
A fast aperture of f/1.4 allows precise focusing and faster shutter speeds even in low light. The shallow depth-of-field afforded by a wide maximum aperture gives pleasing bokeh, adding extra depth to portraits.
Smooth and precise 4-stop image stabilisation
Challenging light can make or break a good picture. The 4-stops of image stabilisation will help negate camera shake and give photographers and filmmakers working in difficult shooting conditions an added advantage, just when they need it most.
Responsive, high-speed and precise AF for exceptional focus agility
Thanks to latest AF technology the lens reacts quickly and accurately, allowing near-silent focusing on the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM. Clear focus markings and full AF compatibility with all EOS systems makes this lens the perfect companion for photographers and filmmakers.
Durable construction, exceptional weather resistance, total compatibility
A durable construction including a shock absorbing front barrel gives high levels of performance in all conditions. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens elements help protect against dust and moisture while precise distance markings allow for E-TTL calculations when using flash on the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM.
Where artistry meets performance
A camera is only as good as the lens it is connected to, and all L-series lenses have been engineered to perform at the highest level. Full AF compatibility with Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensors means this lens will deliver outstanding results in both stills and video.
