Portrait-length prime is designed for use with full-frame Canon RF-mount mirrorless digital cameras.
Modest-but-bright f/2 maximum aperture maintains an overall sleek form factor while also benefitting working in available lighting conditions.
Macro design benefits working with close-up subjects and provides a 1:2 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 1.15'.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to five stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds. Also, a Hybrid IS setting compensates for angular and shift-type camera movements to specifically benefit close-up shooting.
STM stepping motor offers fast, quiet, smooth, and accurate autofocus performance that is ideal for video recording as well as still shooting.
Configurable Control Ring can be used to adjust a variety of exposure settings, including aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

The Canon ET-73 Lens Hood for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS Lens is not compatible with the Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM Lens. You need to get the Canon ET-77 Lens Hood. Here is the link: https://bhpho.to/3p5szN5

Is the aperture fixed at F2?
Asked by: Cesar
No, the largest maximum aperture of this lens is f/2 but its aperture can go lower (i.e. f/4, f/8, f/16, etc.) if necessary. Canon does not have the lowest possible aperture listed for this lens, and we do not have a sample or pre-production copy available for me to test, but I would assume it would at least go to f/22.

Does this lens focus closer when using manual ...

Does this lens focus closer when using manual focus than it does with auto-focus?
Asked by: Bill
This lens does include a focus range limiter that presets and limits focus to specified ranges. That can optimise focusing and prevent unnecessary "hunting" and delay when working in the "half-macro" range. The focus limiter settings are (1) "Full", (2) 20 inches to infinity, and (3) "Macro" 14 inches to 20 inches only.

The long, locking ET-77 hood is not included but is currently available for $49.95. You should also plan on adding a good, multi-coated 67 mm skylight (UV) filter to complete the package.
