Capture your subject’s true spirit with a lens offering subtle telephoto perspective for flattering portraits, plus macro close focusing.
Shoot with confidence even when light levels drop. The RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM is designed to work in conjunction with an EOS R series camera, with both the camera and the lens sharing data to reduce camera-shake blur. With up to 5 stops of Image Stabilization, it delivers impressively clear results when shooting handheld.
The RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM features a lens control ring for customisable control over shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation. The easy-to-identify textured surface gives you tangible feedback to adjust while looking through the viewfinder and concentrating on your subject.
With its 85mm focal length this is an ideal lens for flattering portraits, producing elegant results with beautiful soft backgrounds thanks to a wide f/2 aperture.
Get up close and personal. The RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM can focus from a distance of 35cm magnified up to 0.5x, excellent for closeup macro shooting. Handy for more intricate shots like jewellery, food, flowers and smaller subjects you really want to show off.
The RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM uses a gear-type stepping motor to provide smooth and quiet autofocus, so focusing appears natural and seamless. Have clean transitions when moving between subjects or when focusing from the foreground to background, creating professional looking footage.
