Known as the “gold standard” for professional portrait work, the EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM is the brightest in its class and offers beautiful out-of-focus effects. With this lens, you get the same quality demanded by the professionals. You’ll find this lens is even more pleasant for portraits because the very shallow depth of field delivers beautiful background blurs. A drastically sped-up autofocus response allows you to capture fleeting photo opportunities. By virtue of its precisely ground aspherical lens, this lens displays exquisite detail and high contrast. A special lens coating minimizes ghosting and flare (phenomena that degrades image quality).
