A prized prime for portraiture, the Canon RF-mount Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 is a short telephoto lens characterized by its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture. This bright design suits working in low-light conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subject matter. The optical design incorporates one hybrid aspherical element that helps to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to reduce flare and ghosting in order to achieve greater contrast and color fidelity. The manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 3.6' away and a rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes a pleasing bokeh quality.
