The RF 85mm f1.2L USM: The Ultimate EOS R-Series Portrait Lens

Canon have today announced the latest in their new line of RF lenses, the 85mm f1.2L. Offering a superior optical performance thanks to its advance lens design and the use of ground-breaking Canon optics, the RF 85mm F1.2L USM is the ultimate portrait lens for next generation imaging.

 

 

The perfect focal length for portraits

The RF 85mm F1.2L USM is the ideal short telephoto for flattering portraits, producing elegant and detailed results with a pleasing perspective and no distortion.

 

Fast and bright with superb optical precision

With a fast f/1.2 aperture, the lens is superb in low light offering incredible sharpness and creative expression with pleasing and unique bokeh.

 

Advanced lens elements and coatings

The lens employs Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) optics and a UD lens element which negate colour aberrations from affecting image quality, while a ground aspheric lens element ensures the highest image quality and ASC coating prevent flare and ghosting.

 

L-series build quality and weather-sealing

The build quality redefines L-series quality with weather-sealing and fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements to guard against water and dust.

 

Fast USM motor and Lens Control Ring

Thanks to the fast speed of the RF mount and the use of a large ring type USM focusing motor, the RF 85mm F1.2L USM is fast to lock onto a subject while the Lens Control Ring provides additional customisable control over settings.

 

Available from late June, with an RRP of £2799
