● Medium telephoto lens - 85mm focal length, fast f/1.2 aperture
● Large diameter precision-ground aspherical element effectively corrects spherical aberration
● Floating lens elements to minimise aberration during focus, ensuring high image quality over entire image area
● Large maximum aperture for available light shooting and attractive background defocus
● 95cm minimum focus distance
● Ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for fast and virtually silent operation
● Manual focussing enabled even during AF mode (full time mechanical focusing)
With a large maximum aperture of f/1.2, this is the fastest 85mm telephoto lens in its class.
One aspherical lens element and two high-refraction elements give sharp images with little flare even at the maximum aperture.
The floating system corrects coma for high image quality.
