Superb bokeh with stunning optical precision

Offering the ultimate in bokeh thanks to Canon’s unique DS Coating plus an F1.2, 9-bladed aperture, the lens is superb at capturing creative images.

Advanced lens elements and coatings

Special Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) optics which negate colour aberrations are used in the lens while a ground aspheric element and ASC coating prevent flare and ghosting.

L-series build quality and weather-sealing

The build quality is distinctly L-series with weather-sealing and fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements to guard against dust and water.

Fast USM motor and Lens Control Ring

Thanks to the fast speed of the RF mount, the RF 85mm F1.2L USM is fast to lock onto a subject while the Lens Control Ring provides additional control over settings.

What is DS?

Defocus Smoothing (DS) works thanks to a special coating to two of the lens' thirteen elements. This gives out-of-focus highlights smoother edges compared to those rendered by the standard version of the lens.

With Defocus Smoothing, the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM DS turns the stock RF 85mm bokeh beast into a bokeh behemo...

I had this lens for a few weeks to decide to move from Nikon to Canon. It was used with an R5 in swimming contests and portraits. This combination exceeded my expectations with a wonderful bokeh and low light performance. This made my decision easier.

Clifton Cameras

It’s a great portrait lens like the EF version. Background defocus and creamy bokeh is one of a kind from this lens. Fantastically sharp and great colors too.

Precision Camera & Video

This RF 85mm f1.2 DS is the best portrait lens I’ve ever used. I had owned the “original” Canon EF f1.2 and newer 85mm f1.4 IS models, but none of those can match this new RF lens in terms of AF speed, bokeh, and sharpness!


I am so pleased I purchased this lens. I was on the fence about it because I wasn’t sure I needed it in my kit just yet. For the past 6 months I’ve been working on my skills to move into maybe becoming a professional wedding photographer.
