    Compatible with most Canon DSLR cameras with EF and EF-S bayonet mount

    For use with your existing camera.

    Medium telephoto lens gets you closer to your subject

    Allows you to capture intricately detailed images without getting too close to your subject. Concentrates the focus on a narrow field of view for vivid close-up shots.

    85mm focal length

    Beautifully isolates your subject from the background. This versatile focal length blends depth and dimension for stunning portraits, action shots and low-light images.

    f/1.4 maximum aperture

    Wide-open aperture performs exceptionally well in low-light settings. Provides remarkable depth-of-field control, so you can softly blur the background and draw attention to your subject.

    Optical Image Stabilization technology

    Delivers up to 4 stops (CIPA Standard) of stabilization, making handheld operation possible in a vastly increased number of scenarios from portraiture to snapshots and everywhere in between.

    Professional-grade design

    Provides a dust- and water-resistant construction with seals around the switch panel, the focus rings and the mount.

    The surface of the lens even features a smudge-resistant fluorine coating that repels water and oil and can easily be cleaned with a dry cloth.

    Inner focusing ring USM (ultrasonic motor) system

    Works with a high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithms to help deliver precise, lightning-fast performance.

    For even more refinement, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM offers full-time manual focus as well.

    2.79' minimum focusing distance

    Accommodates 77mm filters

    Accessories included

    Comes with a lens cap (E-77II), lens case (LP1219), and lens hood (ET-83E).
