Canon RF 85mm F2.0 IS STM shipping next week

Just in case you missed this, the Canon RF 85mm F2.0 IS STM - Canon's more economic 85mm is shipping this week on October 22.

The 85mm F2.0 also fixes one of the flaws I always found with the EF variant, the 85mm F1.8 was that I found the minimum focus distance to be too long at times and I couldn't get close enough.  The 85mm F2.0 IS STM is a macro (.5x) and allows for a MUCH closer focus distance.

With a price of $599 - it's a steal and bound to be a great seller for Canon.

Some of it's core features include;

  • 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.
