The New Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Lens – Classic Portrait Length with Image Stabilization
Canon released some new stills glass, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Lens. It is the first EF mount 85mm to also feature Canon’s Image Stabilization.
The lens uses a large diameter molded glass aspherical lens and a 9 blade iris f/1.4 aperture making it an extremely fast lens. For those situations when you don’t have enough light, or want so much bokeh that it looks like every short Canon 5D mkII film from 2008…
The Canon EF 85mm is supposed to be available November 2017 at a quite reasonable $1599. A classic portrait lens at a good price.
