Canon RF 85mm F1.2 L USM Lens
With its fixed 85mm focal length and wide f/1.2 maximum aperture, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM lens is ideal for photographing portraits, weddings, fashion and more, and great for low-light situations and producing beautiful, soft backgrounds. It gives you fast autofocus speed, and works great with the Eye Detection AF feature found in the EOS R and EOS RP cameras to provide impressive focus on a subject’s eye. All this and more, including Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR) to help reduce chromatic aberration and Air Sphere Coating to help minimize flaring and ghosting, combine to give you a lens you’ll want among your favorites.
High Image Quality and Bright f/1.2 Aperture L Lens for EOS R System Cameras
An incredibly bright fixed focal length lens, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM distinguishes itself by maintaining incredibly high image quality, edge to edge, even wide open at its f/1.2 maximum aperture. With 13 elements in 9 groups and a 9-blade aperture system, it can deliver sharp and detailed images with gorgeous background blur and remarkable consistency.
Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR) Reduces Chromatic Aberration
Thanks to Canon's BR optics (Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics), the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM helps capture beautiful detailed photos with minimal chromatic aberration, while also providing stunning resolution.
Minimum Focusing Distance of 2.79 ft/0.85m
With a minimum focusing distance of 2.79 ft./0.85m and a maximum magnification of approx. 0.12x, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM is capable of capturing sharp and detailed images from various distances. Whether you're shooting portraits, still life or close ups, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM can easily provide sharp images with minimal distortion.
Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes
The RF 85mm F1.2 L USM lens incorporates a control ring on the lens barrel that can directly adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the front of the lens and effectively adding a third dial to the EOS R series cameras’ main dial and quick control dial, the control ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and features a clicking mechanism that provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder. For photographers and moviemakers who would prefer a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed by a Canon service provider for a fee.
One Aspherical Element and One UD Lens
Taking advantage of the RF mount, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM lens offers incredible optical quality and an exceedingly bright f/1.2 maximum aperture. It features a large diameter Aspherical element for high image quality from center to corner and an Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) glass element that helps reduce aberrations for minimized distortion throughout the image plane.
High-Speed 12 pin Communication System
Designed to quickly process data, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM features the 12 pin communication system inherent in all RF lenses. This accelerates AF, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer and more, helping to simplify complex operations and provide a quick and reliable user experience. Other features of the 12 pin communication system:
- Lens Information Display: Lens information is displayed right in the viewfinder
- In-Camera Digital Lens Optimizer combats aberrations and image deterioration
Dust- and Weather-Resistant with Fluorine Coating
Like all L series lenses, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM lens is built to endure the rigors of professional use. Constructed to be rugged, refined and precise, it can be operated intuitively so concentration can remain on the subject at hand. Rugged features include:
- Vibration Shock Resistance
- Dust- and Weather-Resistant
- Fluorine Coating
- Air Sphere Coating (ASC) minimizes lens flare and ghosting
