The Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens is highly practical and ideal for a range of applications including portraiture. Its fast f/1.8 maximum aperture is effective in low light and ideal for shallow depth of field focus control. An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) provides fast, smooth, and quiet AF action and because the front lens group does not rotate during focusing, polarizing and special filter effects can be used effectively.

What it is for

  • Portraits. Take your time, take 5-7 shots of each pose. You will be very pleased with the result and quality.
  • Products. Unless the product is huge, this can really make your product pop. The DOF is amazing and the background is almost pure bokeh if you work it right.
  •  Depth of Field. Anything you feel you will need a sharp DOF, this is it. A shot of a model sitting on a bench, with some leaves in the foreground could be a one in million shot. But like I said before, take your time, make sure the model is the focal point and shoot 5-7 shots.
