Bright f/2 Aperture
The lens’ bright f/2 aperture combined with EOS R’s full-frame sensor results in exceptional low-light performance and beautiful background blur.
Optical Image Stabilization
The Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM Lens comes with a built-in Optical Image Stabilization that compensates for up to 5-stop of shake correction delivering impressive results. When used with EOS R series cameras, both camera and the lens help dramatically reduce camera-shake blur, regardless of the situation, whether shooting video or stills.
9-Blade Circular Aperture
The RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM comes with a 9-blade circular aperture allows for incredible level of control over background blur providing stunning images with out-of-focus areas and soft backgrounds.
Maximum Magnification of 0.5x
This RF lens provides an impressive 1.15-feet minimum focusing distance - perfect for close-ups. With a maximum magnification of 0.5x the lens is suitable for close-up 1:2 half life-size macro photography and helps capture a variety of macro subjects with stunning results.
Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes
The Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM employs a control ring on the barrel that allows for numerous lens settings including shutter speed, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation, and more. This ring features a tactile, easily distinguished surface and a clicking mechanism offering tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder. Please note that photographers and moviemakers who would prefer a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed at a Canon Factory Service Center location for a fee.
12-Pin Communication System
The RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM incorporates a 12-pin communication system that allows you to quickly communicate shooting data. This eases out a lot of complex processes that require high-speed communication and large data transfer like fast AF response with broader AF area, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer, and even the adjustment of the customizable Lens Control Ring for a quick and efficient user experience.
