Overview & Details

Canon EF 85mm F1.8 Ultrasonic Motor AF Lens
Prized for portraiture, this beauty from Canon is a short-telephoto prime known for achieving flattering results. Its bright f/1.8 maximum aperture also enables isolating subjects and working with shallow depth of field techniques, and further benefits working in low-light conditions. Helping to achieve high color fidelity and contrast, a Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements and serves to minimize reflections, lens flare and ghosting. Your inner photographer awaits at the next family gathering.

  • One of my favorites for portraits!

    Phenomenal lens! It's really helped me take my work to the next level. It arrived just in time for Christmas and I was able to put it to good use while with family. I got some amazing shots, along with new business requests as well. If you're new to photography--just note that this is a very wide lens. You'll need to be a few feet away from your subject in order to get them in frame, but the result is incredible. It's perfect for portraits and offers impressive bokeh (depth of field) effect.
