This Canon prime lens – designed for portrait photography – is one of Canon’s more budget friendly high-quality lenses. With a fast f1.8 aperture to counter low-light conditions, it also creates incredible bokeh, separating the subject from the background more effectively than most zoom-lenses. With in-built USM technology, its auto-focus speed and accuracy is quite rapid, allowing the 85mm f1.8 to double as a sports lens.

  • Fixed f1.8 aperture – great for low-light shooting.
  • Ring-type USM – allowing for fast, accurate auto-focus with minimal noise.
  • Amazing depth-of-field – perfect for portraits and sports photography
  • 425g – handy to take on-the-go
  • Inexpensive, compared to other prime lenses.

The EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens from Canon is a highly practical medium telephoto prime lens ideal for a range of applications including portraiture. Its fast f/1.8 maximum aperture is effective in low light and ideal for shallow depth of field focus control. An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) provides fast, smooth and quiet AF action and because the front lens group does not rotate during focusing, polarizing and special filter effects can be used effectively.

Fast Maximum Aperture

A bright f/1.8 maximum aperture makes this lens a good choice for low-light photography and provides shallow depth of field control, ideal for portraiture with pleasing background blur.
