The Canon EF 85mm f1.8 USM lens is a highly practical and creative medium telephoto lens. It features a bright, fast constant maximum aperture of f1.8, which delivers beautiful background blur and makes it ideal for shooting in low-light conditions. Its optical construction consists of 9 elements in 7 groups, with Super Spectra coatings to reduce ghosting and flare and produce sharp, clear images.

Key Features: Canon EF 85mm f1.8 USM Lens

  • Fast, bright f/1.8 aperture
  • USM focus motor with full-time manual focus
  • 85cm closest focusing distance
  • Super Spectra coatings reduce ghosting and flare

A practical and portability telephoto lens
The EF 85mm f/1.8 USM produces images that are sharp and clear at all apertures. A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out-of-focus regions a softer, more even feel, and lets in-focus subjects stand out against a blurred background. The lens features a non-rotating front element during focusing, enabling specialist filters (such as polarisers and graduates) to be used.

Large f/1.8 aperture
A large maximum aperture of f/1.8 lets photographers shoot hand-held in difficult, low-light conditions, as well as restrict depth-of-field for creative effects.

Compressed perspective in portraiture
The short telephoto focal length of the lens slightly compresses perspective, reducing the size of prominent facial features for a flattering result.

Ultrasonic focusing
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.

Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

Integration with E-TTL II flash metering
The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering."
