Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Lens

BH #CA8512LEF2 • MFR #1056B002
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Lens
Key Features
  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.2 to f/16
  • One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
Mixing a short-telephoto focal length with a bright maximum aperture, the EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM is a Canon L-series lens well-suited for portraiture. The impressively fast f/1.2 maximum aperture affords a great degree of control over depth of field for isolating subjects and producing desirable selective focus effects. Complementing these qualities is a sophisticated design that includes one aspherical element to suppress spherical aberrations and notable sharpness and clarity, and a floating optical system is used that maintains image quality throughout the focusing range. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting and promote greater contrast and color accuracy in a variety of lighting conditions. Complementing the imaging attributes, a ring-type USM is employed to deliver quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control.

Unfair question, but how does this lens compare ...

Unfair question, but how does this lens compare to the Pentax Takumar 85mm 1.8 in color, etc.?
Asked by: Annetta
I have not used the Pentax. Colors on the Canon 85 1.2L II are characteristic of the series—rich yet natural; good but not exaggerated contrast. Fully open the contrast between focus and unfocus creates a nearly 3D effect which even a 1.8 could not match.

question

Would this lens be compatible with the Panasonic GH4 with a Metabones Speed Booster and what focal length would it be when mounted on a mft system with the adapter?
Asked by: Anonymous
Metabones has two different Speed Booster lens adapters that are compatible for use with Canon EF lenses, both which have different crop factor compensation for each. The Metabones T Speed Booster XL 0.64x Adapter for Full-Frame Canon EF-Mount Lens to Select Micro Four Thirds-Mount Cameras, B&H # MESPEFM43BT3, has a crop factor of 0.64x on Canon full-frame lenses. As such, the lens would become the equivalent of a 54.4mm f/0.8 lens, as 85mm x 0.64 = 54.4mm. This is the equivalent focal length/angle of view for the Micro Four Thirds sensor. If you are looking for the full-frame equivalent with this adapter, then as the Micro Four Thirds sensor has a 2x crop factor, the Canon 85mm f/1.2 lens would have the equivalent angle of view of a 108.8mm lens used on a full-frame camera.Likewise, the Metabones T Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x Adapter for Canon Full-Frame EF-Mount Lens to Micro Four Thirds-Mount Camera, B&H # MESPEFM43BT4, has a crop factor of 0.71x on Canon full-frame lenses. As such, the lens would become the equivalent of a 60.35mm f/0.9 lens. This is the equivalent focal length/angle of view for the Micro Four Thirds sensor. If you are looking for the full-frame equivalent with this adapter, then as the Micro Four Thirds sensor has a 2x crop factor, the Canon 85mm f/1.2 lens would have the equivalent angle of view of a 120.7mm lens used on a full-frame camera.

question

Is this the USA made version?
Asked by: Rebecca
In situations where B&H offers both a USA and an imported version of a product, we label each version clearly and explicitly. If a product does not have an indication either way, it is understood to be by default a USA product. In situations where only a USA version is offered it will not be labeled USA. According to the information we have, our current inventory's Country of Origin is Japan. Please be aware this can change over the product's production life without notice.

question

Does this work with the Canon 7D?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, this works on a Canon 7D. As the 7D is a Crop Sensor Camera, this lens will be the equivalent of a 136mm lens on this body. It is an excellent lens. If you ever go to a full frame body, it will be an 85mm on that body.

question

Will this be okay with Canon 80D as it crop sensor?
Asked by: Keyun M.
Yes, it would work. EF lenses work on crop cameras. We have a 70d and 80d. Full frame lenses work great.
