The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Lens boasts very high quality with a very fast maximum aperture that is perfect for low depth-of-field portraiture and still life work. This lens is considered among many Canon shooters as a definitive portrait lens, along with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens.

Fast Aperture & Optics
The impressively fast f/1.2 maximum aperture affords a great degree of control over depth of field for isolating subjects and producing desirable selective focus effects. Complementing these qualities is a sophisticated design that includes one aspherical element to suppress spherical aberrations and notable sharpness and clarity, and a floating optical system is used that maintains image quality throughout the focusing range.

Best Lens for Portrait and Still-Life work
Canon 85mm f/1.2L II is the best portrait lens ever made. Mixing a short-telephoto focal length with a bright maximum aperture, this Canon L-series lens is well-suited for portraiture & still life work. It’s a hefty piece of glass—almost as wide as it is long—with a “deliberate” focus speed (meaning it’s really not suited for fast action or sports shooting).

Incredibly Sharp with Great Bokeh
It remains incredibly sharp when wide open and beautifully blurs the out-of-focus background. It’s possible to shoot in near darkness or candlelight, and the depth of field when wide open is so narrow that you must often stop down to f/1.4 to get the subject’s entire face into focus.

USM Motor
Complementing the imaging attributes, a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) is employed to deliver quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control.

Build quality
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is resistant to dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting and promote greater contrast and color accuracy in a variety of lighting conditions.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
