Superb bokeh with stunning optical precision

Offering the ultimate in bokeh thanks to Canon’s unique DS Coating plus an F1.2, 9-bladed aperture, the lens is superb at capturing creative images.

Advanced lens elements and coatings

Special Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) optics which negate colour aberrations are used in the lens while a ground aspheric element and ASC coating prevent flare and ghosting.

The Defocus Smoothing difference

The RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS lens is a unique high-performance lens offering a combination of beautifully smooth defocused background bokeh and a super fast aperture to produce breath-taking portraits. The benefit of the DS effect is most noticeable at the widest aperture, and is reduced as the aperture is stopped down. Out of focus highlights are rendered as soft discs of light, and are instantly recognisable as characteristic of the DS lens.

Sharpness with style

Go beyond detail and capture the true spirit of a subject with a lens offering exceptional performance and reliability. See how DS coating works not just in low light, with the ultimate smooth bokeh when the background has creative potential.

How the DS Coating works

Canon’s DS (Defocus Smoothing) coating produces a soft and unique defocus effect, where an originally sharp outline in a defocused image is further blurred with exceptional smoothness. Canon has achieved this effect by using the same optics as the RF 85mm F1.2L USM and making use of vapor-deposition technology to control the amount of light passing into the lens.

Fast USM motor and Lens Control Ring

Thanks to the fast speed of the RF mount, the RF 85mm F1.2L USM is fast to lock onto a subject while the Lens Control Ring provides additional control over settings.
