Features

Beautiful Bokeh with DS* Coating

Great for portrait, wedding, and fashion imagery, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens, with Defocus Smoothing, provides an even smoother bokeh and rendering of out-of-focus highlights, particularly when it's used at or near its maximum f/1.2 aperture. What you focus on will be very sharp, and the edges of background highlights will be smoother than the non-DS version of the RF 85mm lens.

High Image Quality and Bright f/1.2 Aperture

The RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS distinguishes itself by not only maintaining the highest optical performance, but also maintaining smoother edges even with a wide opening at its f/1.2 maximum aperture among Canon’s interchangeable lenses with an 85mm focal length. With 13 elements in 9 groups and a 9-blade aperture system, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens helps create intimacy and intensity in both photos and videos for impactful results.

* Based on Canon's research, the RF85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens achieves the highest optical performance (MTF) at maximum aperture among Canon's 85mm autofocus lenses for interchangeable cameras (DSLRs and mirrorless) available as of October 24, 2019.

Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR) Reduces Chromatic Aberration

Thanks to our BR optics (Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics), the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens helps capture beautiful detailed photos with minimal chromatic aberration, while also providing stunning resolution. Excellent rendering performance can be achieved from the maximum aperture.

Minimum Focusing Distance of 2.79 ft./0.85m

With a minimum focusing distance of 2.79 ft./0.85m and a maximum magnification of approx. 0.12x, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens is capable of capturing sharp and detailed images from various distances. Whether you're shooting portraits, still life or close-ups, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens can easily provide sharp images with minimal distortion, and dramatic background blurring expressions.

Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes

The RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens incorporates a control ring on the lens barrel that can directly adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the front of the lens and effectively adding a third dial to the main dial and quick control dial of the EOS R series cameras, the control ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and features a clicking mechanism that provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder. For photographers and moviemakers who would prefer a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed by a Canon service provider for a fee.

High-speed Communication with the Camera

Designed to quickly process data, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens features the 12 pin communication system inherent in all RF lenses. This helps to accelerate AF, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer and more, helping to simplify complex operations and provide a quick and reliable user experience.

Lens Information Display

As part of the EOS R system, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens works with an EOS R series camera so that its lens information is displayed right in the viewfinder, making it easy to confirm the lens's focal length without looking away from the subject at hand.

In-camera Digital Lens Optimizer

The EOS R system's 12 pin communication system enables the Digital Lens Optimizer, which works in-camera to combat aberrations and image deterioration, especially in the edges of the image frame when shooting at a large aperture. Data from the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens is transferred automatically to the camera body, facilitating near immediate correction for clear, detailed images.

Dust- and Weather-resistant

For reliable performance even when weather conditions get difficult, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens features dust- and weather-resistant construction in the lens mount, switch panel and all rings. Sealing is applied to lens joining sections, and switch panels to help prevent water and dust from entering into the lens.

Fluorine Coating

The RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens features fluorine coatings on the front and rearmost surfaces to help prevent dirt and dust from sticking to the lens, making it easy to clean off smudges and fingerprints.

High Reliability and Durability for Professional Use

Like all L series lenses, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens is built to endure the rigors of professional use. Constructed to be rugged, refined and precise, it can be operated intuitively so concentration can remain on the subject at hand.

Vibration Shock Resistance

Engineered to accommodate its optical system, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens features L series level vibration shock resistance in the lens barrel, helping to maintain focus and settings even in turbulent situations.

DISCLAIMERS


* DS: Defocus Smoothing

1. In order to use this lens with the EOS R or EOS RP, a compatible version of firmware is required. Download the latest camera firmware from the Canon web site and install it on your camera.

2. Since the transmittance of the lens periphery decreases due to the DS coating, brightness of the lens at maximum aperture is about 1 1/3 stops darker than f/1.2. By updating the camera to the latest firmware, exposure control in AE will be performed appropriately.
