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.

An affordable yet high-quality portrait lens

High quality portrait performance at a remarkably reasonable price. This is the attraction of this Canon prime lens, the EF 85mm f1.8 USM. For portraits, in-studio or on location, for still-life shots and for many more applications this lens is a desirable piece of kit, thanks to its medium-telephoto fixed length, fast f1.8 aperture and compact size to top it all off - this lens weighs just 425 grams!

For low light shooting this Canon lens is the perfect tool, its fast f1.8 aperture lets in more light than a slower lens and therefore allows you to utilise faster shutter speeds. Paired with the medium telephoto focal length, this bright aperture also provides excellent depth of field control, meaning you can open the aperture right up if necessary and only a small portion of your photograph will be sharp and in focus. Shallow depths of field are perfect for separating your model from their background and training your audience's eyes on the key areas of your image.

Like many DSLR users, you probably use your camera for a variety of applications, under a variety of conditions, so you need your lens to be just as versatile. The EF 85mm f1.8 is happy to oblige with a fast and quiet UltraSonic autofocus motor that is just as useful for shooting still-life shots in a studio as it is a moving model out in the field, or even filming video.
