Fast maximum aperture
The EF 85 mm f/1.2 L USM II features a large maximum aperture of f/1.2, enabling you to use fast shutter speeds in low light situations. You can enjoy fine control over focusing, allowing for extremely shallow depth of field to create unique effects.
With its circular aperture diaphragm, you can sharpen foreground images to make them stand out against smooth blurred backgrounds. This makes the lens ideal for portraiture photography, bringing the subject into sharp focus.
You can autofocus quickly and in near silence as a result of the EF 85 mm f/1.2 L USM II‘s ring-type ultrasonic motor. The point of focus is reached accurately by holding torque, while you can remain in complete control thanks to a full-time manual override. With this, you can adjust the focus without having to leave AF mode.
Colour is balanced accurately and contrast is enhanced by Super Spectra coatings. Flare and ghosting is reduced, solving a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera’s sensor.
Integration with E-TTL II flash systems
Distance information is passed by the EF 85 mm f/1.2 L USM II to a compatible EOS camera’s E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering, creating shots lit to your ideal standards.
