Canon RF 85mm F2 MACRO IS STM lens 

With its 85mm focal length this is an ideal lens for flattering portraits, producing elegant results with beautiful soft backgrounds thanks to a wide f/2 aperture.

Excellent results every time 

The RF mount gives you incredible performance with stunning levels of detail in your images plus a built-in DLO profile for in-camera lens optimisation.

Get up close and personal

Focus up to 35cm and 0.5x macro to discover fine detail, capturing images with superb edge-to-edge sharpness thanks to a high f/29 minimum aperture.

Quick, slick and quiet 

An STM motor allows smooth, quiet AF while a Lens Control Ring gives great control over settings. Create smooth out of focus areas thanks to a nine-blade aperture.

Pocketable and lightweight

Weighing just 500g, the lens is unobtrusive and compact plus, with dimensions of just 78x90.5cm, it’s easy to take with you for extra creative opportunities.

5-Stop Image Stabilizer

The RF85 mm F2 MACRO IS STM features an Image Stabilizer offering 5-stops compensation. The combination of this technology and high-speed RF communication means that performance of this lens exceeds expectations, allowing photographers to choose longer exposures without motion blur affecting the resulting image. 

9-blade aperture

The RF 85mm F2 MACRO IS STM aperture system uses nine aperture blades to produce a round aperture, producing smoother out of focus areas to help the main subject stand out even better against the background.

"I've lost count of the number of 85mm lenses I have owned over the years but this one is somewhere very near the top of my favourites list. It essentially replaces the EF85mm f1.8 in my day-to day work and the biggest advantage that it has is that it has a far superior close-focus facility to the older lens. There were times when I needed an extension ring to be able to shoot tight portraits with the EF lens and I am very happy top say that is no longer an issue. It's a nice and relatively compact lens and pretty light in weight too. Like all RF lenses, it's very sharp and has decent contrast (some lenses are too contrasty for my taste). The AF is fast on all of my EOS R cameras and several weeks into ownership the only downsides are that I had to buy a lens hood and that the STM (stepping motor) is a little less quiet than the USM on the older lens. I still have an EF 85mm f1.4L lens in the cupboard but I haven't felt the need to use it since buying the RF 85mm f2 STM. I have also bought an RF 35mm f1.8 STM and between the two of them I have my "perfect pair of primes" that I have used ever since buying 35mm and 85mm Zuiko lenses back in the mid-1980s. "
