Prioritizing bokeh, the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 L USM DS is a unique portrait-length prime, characterized by its flattering focal length, exceptionally bright maximum aperture, and advanced optical design. Differentiating itself from Canon's other RF 85mm f/1.2 lens, this version features a DS (Defocus Smoothing) coating that helps to soften and smooth the bokeh quality when working at wider aperture settings, making it particularly suitable for shallow depth of field applications.

what's the difference between defocus smoothing and image stabilization? why eos r doesn't have built in stabilizer which option is the best for me
Asked by: Karla
Defocus Smoothing (DS) is a coating on the lens that smooths out of focus areas/bokeh when shooting at wide apertures. It is purely for looks. Image Stabilization (IS) is a mechanism in the lens (and/or body) that reduces blurriness from vibrations, especially when shooting at lower shutter speeds.

Asked by: Karla
Defocus Smoothing just makes the bokeh (out of focus areas) look smoother than usual. It is not related to Image Stabilization which is indicated by "IS" in lenses that have it.

Is this lens good for astrophotography?

Is this lens good for astrophotography?
Asked by: Colin
It all depends on the type of composition you prefer shooting. Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM DS Lens angle of view is 28° 30' which may be too narrow for Astrophotography compositions. I will recommend starting with a 35mm. There aren't any Canon L series 35mmprime lenses yet. Canon has a 15-35mm ultra wide angle lens on the RF L series.
