Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lens is a short-telephoto glass that provides the ideal focal length for portraits and a flattering perspective for faces.
The RF 85MM f/1.2L USM is one of Canon’s fastest aperture autofocus lenses for its full-frame mirrorless range of cameras. When coupled with the short telephoto length and Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the fast f/1.2 aperture creates stunning shallow depth of field, bokeh and background separation.
The fast prime optic will start shipping from June 20th, 2019. The US price for this lens is $2,699.00 and available for pre-order at B&H Photo Video/Adorama/Amazon.
