Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Lens

 

Canon's second-generation fast, medium telephoto prime lens for portraiture and low light photography with both ‘full frame' and APS-C sensor DSLR cameras.

The 85mm focal length is particularly desirable in a prime lens because it's so versatile. It's great for portraiture because it provides a good working distance without introducing distortion. Wedding photographers can use it for both staged couples...

REVIEW: Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Lens

I use this lens for portraits and it is crisp and clear. I also use this lens for indoor sports, where flash is not allowed and at iso 400-800 i get shutter speeds of 500 plus.

Great for low light! Sharp all the way through. Quick focus. If you want a short telephoto for indoor shooting with no flash - this is your lens!!! No regrets…

NONE
