Overview: The Canon EF85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens is an
L-series, fixed length, medium-telephoto lens for Canon EOS cameras. The lens has
a high-precision, large-diameter aspheric lens element for excellent imaging
performance, even at maximum aperture. The round aperture gives you
a narrow depth of field and the desired soft background blur. The lens includes
the LP1219 Lens Case and the ET-83E Lens Hood.
Ultrasonic Motor (USM): The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens is
equipped with an Ultrasonic Motor for silent, high-speed auto focusing. The
inner focusing system works with a high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithms to
provide its quick, accurate focusing performance.
Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether you're in manual or
auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus
on a subject, but manually change the focus by turning the focusing ring.
Image Stabilizer (IS): Camera shake can cause blurring when
shooting in low light and at long focal lengths. Canon's advanced Image
Stabilizer uses digital technology to detect camera shake and signal precise
lens shifts that compensate for the movement. The EF 85mm lens provides
significant shake reduction equivalent to up to 4 shutter speed steps. You can
turn the Image Stabilizer on or off as desired by using the 2-way switch on the
lens barrel. With the switch set to On, image stabilization begins when you
press the shutter button halfway. Once the image in the viewfinder is stable,
you can take the picture by pressing the shutter button the rest of the way.
Focus Mode Switch: You can switch between Auto Focus and
Manual Focus using the two-way AF/MF switch on the barrel of the lens.
Lens Construction: The EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM has 14 lens
elements in 10 groups, including a molded glass (GMo) aspherical lens to provide
sharp images from edge-to-edge. The Image Stabilizer lens features Canon's
Anti-reflective Coating (ASC) to reduce flare and ghosting when shooting backlit
subjects. The front element of the lens features a fluorine coating that
prevents fingerprints on the lens and stops dirt from sticking. This allows you
to easily wipe away dirt and fingerprints that may appear on the lens surface.
Lens Hood: The lens kit includes the ET-83E lens hood to keep
unwanted light out of the lens, and protect the front of the lens. The hood can
be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage. When installed, the hood adds
approximately 1-1/4" to the overall length of the lens.
Optional Filters: The EF85mm lens has a 77mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.
