The perfect package, this fast L-series telephoto with advanced optical engineering is perfect for creative portrait photography.

Capture portraits in superb detail and live for the story

This fast portrait 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.
