Combining a short-telephoto field of view with a sleek design and close-focusing performance, the RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM is a well-rounded lens for a range of subjects, from portraits to macro subjects. Its close focus design enables working with subject matter as close as 1.15' away with a 1:2 maximum magnification and the STM stepping motor affords impressively quiet and smooth autofocus performance and full-time manual focus override. Helping to create sharp imagery, the lens also features optical image stabilization, along with Hybrid IS, to suppress up to five stops of camera shake for cleaner, steadier shooting. A UD (Ultra low Dispersion) element is also used in the optical design to minimize aberrations and ensure clarity. Additionally, a configurable Control Ring lets you adjust exposure settings, including ISO, aperture, and exposure compensation, from the lens itself.

Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM Reviews
Great lens for the price.
Great prime Lens Price
This lens is not a bad lens. Canon's 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM is an alternative to the 85mm f/1.2L and much more affordable. I purchased this lens because I really wanted an 85mm prime lens and the depth of field. The only issue I have with this lens is that the macro capabilities of this lens make for very slow focusing on my EOS R. I'm a professional photographer and this isn't ideal during a Photoshoot when switching between poses. I do love the use for it for personal use when I'm home or not on the job, and for that reason I've kept it for that, but would definitely recommend saving up for the 85mm 1.2 if your a professional.
It take nice portraits. It's compact and lightweight. Great focal length and sharpness. The only con is, it did not come with lens hood.
Great portrait lens
Excellent lens, sharp, lightweight, fast focus. Great dof at f2.
better than anticipated
Ordered the lens even though some people complained how noisy the AF is. Great lens for macro and people. Very lite and works in low light.
Fit all my needs for portraits
I read review and decided to go this one. It has been on my camera almost all the time since I got it last week. This lens is incredible from my opnion. I am hobbyist but I take portrait photos for my clients sometimes. It turns out very beautiful. Plus the budget price, light weight and I would consider this one as one of best Canon RF lens.
Great lens but wonky autofocus
I absolutely love this lens except for the autofocus when switching from distant to close up. I knew this from YouTube reviews but I can accept that with the price difference and 1:2 macro capabilities. I have taken some stunning and sharp macros with this lens. I get absolutely great bokeh with the f/2 aperture. I use a variable ND filter with no sacrifice in sharpness or color degradation. I just wish the autofocus was better but I can still manually focus on bees in flowers with precision when I need to and I can appreciate the challenge that comes with that. I would give this 5 stars but for that autofocus.
Sharp Canon Macro
It was better than I expected!
