Canon has a rich history spanning over 40 years of producing 85mm lenses with f/1.2 apertures, and the new Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS is no different. The lens ushers in a new lens coating from Canon, Defocus Smoothing, designed to enhance the appearance of bokeh in the images captured with the lens. DS coating is a vapor-deposited coating technology that is applied to the front and rear surfaces of a specific lens element inside the lens. The coating allows off-axis flux to pass through the periphery of the lens that gradually decreases the transmittance of light, which results in images with beautifully blurred backgrounds.
In addition, the new lens features a bright f/1.2 aperture which, along with the 85mm focal length, encompasses an ideal lens for portrait photographers. 85mm is often the preferred focal length selected by photographers when shooting portraits because it provides an appropriate depth and perspective of the subject relative to the background, helping to capture high-quality imagery with beautiful and desirable bokeh. The focal length also allows for the photographer and subject to maintain optimum distance apart to support strong communication, while not being too close.
Additional features of the Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS include:
-Minimum focusing distance of 2.79 feet/0.85 meters
-Customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture or ISO
-One Aspheric lens and one UD Lens, along with BR optics that help to reduce chromatic aberration
-12-pin communication system
-L-Series dust and weather resistant build with fluorine coating
-Air Sphere Coating (ASC) that helps minimize lens flare and ghosting
