Item Description:
  • RF L-series Lens - Unrivaled optical performance
  • DS (Defocus Smoothing) optical coating elevates Bokeh to a new dimension
  • Great for elegant and detailed portraits
  • Smooth, fast and near-silent USM Autofocus for stunning Stills and Video
  • Take stunning portraits that showcase beautifully smooth, eye-catching bokeh with the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens. Designed for the EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system, this specialized, L-series lens follows in the footsteps of the RF 85mm F 1.2 L US lens, offering new Defocus Smoothing (DS) technology for smoother bokeh in wide-aperture images.

    Featuring a fixed 85mm focal length, bright f/1.2 maximum aperture and fast, highly-precise AF, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS lens elevates the look of portraits, creating dreamlike, romantic images with softer edges in out-of-focus areas — all while maintaining tack-sharp focus of your subject. With Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR) for reduced chromatic aberration, and a fluorine coating that prevents dust and water from entering the lens, the RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS is a sophisticated, choice for portrait, fashion, wedding photography and more.

    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 incredibly high image quality, but also maintaining smoother edges even with a wide opening at its f/1.2 maximum aperture. With 13 elements in 9 groups and a 9-blade aperture system, the 85mm F1.2 L USM DS helps create intimacy and intensity in both photos and videos for impactful results.

    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 can easily provide sharp images with minimal distortion, and dramatic background blurring expressions.

    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.

    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.

    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.
