Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM fixed focal length lens

The EF 85mm f/1.2L USM II is a fast lens that delivers superb optical performance. A maximum aperture of f/1.2 makes it the professional's choice for shooting without flash in low light conditions.

L-series quality

  • The EF 85mm f/1.2L USM II incorporates Canon's highest standards of precision optics. The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, combining outstanding image performance and ultimate operability with dust and moisture resistant construction.

Large f/1.2 aperture


  • A large maximum aperture of f/1.2 provides outstanding speed for shooting in low light conditions, without the need for flash. The large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field for compelling portrait photography. 

Excellent background bokeh

  • A circular barrel aperture helps to create attractive, even background bokeh when isolating subjects at large apertures.

Fast, quiet auto focus

  • A ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive extremely rapid auto focus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and optimised AF algorithms contribute further to AF speed. Good holding torque stops the focusing lens group without overshoot. Full time electronic manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF. 

Super Spectra coatings

  • Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping suppress flare and ghosting - more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image sensor. Coatings also help achieve true colour balance and increase contrast for vivid hi-fidelity images.

Passes distance information to E-TTL II

  • The lens passes distance information back to the camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering in any shooting situation.
