Lenses for DSLR

Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM

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

Canon Camera

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.

Smooth and precise 4-stop image stabilisation

Challenging light can make or break a good picture. The 4-stops of image stabilisation will help negate camera shake and give photographers and filmmakers working in difficult shooting conditions an added advantage, just when they need it most.

Responsive, high-speed and precise AF for exceptional focus agility

Thanks to latest AF technology the lens reacts quickly and accurately, allowing near-silent focusing. Clear focus markings and full AF compatibility with all EOS systems makes this lens the perfect companion for photographers and filmmakers.

Durable construction, exceptional weather resistance, total compatibility

A durable construction including a shock absorbing front barrel gives high levels of performance in all conditions. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens elements help protect against dust and moisture while precise distance markings allow for E-TTL calculations when using flash.
