Bright f/2 Aperture Mid-telephoto Macro RF Lens with Beautiful Bokeh: Bright f/2.0 lens - combined with the full-frame sensor of an EOS R series camera - delivers exceptional low-light performance and beautiful background blur.

Maximum Magnification of 0.5x and Minimum Focusing Distance of 1.15 ft.: With its impressive 1.15 ft. minimum focusing distance, the RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM lens is designed for working up-close and personal with subjects to document even the most minute of details. And because it has a maximum magnification of 0.5x, you can even experience close-up 1:2 half life-size macro photography so you can capture a variety of macro subjects with stunning results.

Optical Image Stabilization with up to 5 Stops* of Shake Correction: The RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM lens is designed to work in conjunction with EOS R series cameras, with both the camera and the lens sharing data to dramatically reduce camera-shake blur, regardless of the situation, whether shooting video or stills. With up to 5 stops** of stabilization, it delivers impressively clear results.

Hybrid IS Compensates for Angular and Shift Camera Shake during Macro Shooting: Hybrid IS provides an incredibly effective and steadying influence on your close-up stills and video content creation. It provides up-to 3-stops of Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization to compensate for both angular and shift-type camera shake that may occur during macro shooting, allowing image-makers with EOS R series cameras to capture impressively precise detail wherever they are.

Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes: The RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM lens incorporates a control ring on the lens barrel that can directly adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the front of the lens it effectively adds a third dial to EOS R and RP cameras, and a fourth dial to EOS R5 and R6 cameras. With a tactile, easily distinguished surface and a clicking mechanism that provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder, the control ring adds outstanding connection to any shooting scenario. For photographers and moviemakers who would prefer a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed at a Canon Factory Service Center location for a fee.

12-pin Communication System: Designed to quickly communicate shooting data, the RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM features the 12 pin communication system inherent in all RF lenses. This helps coordinate complex processes requiring high-speed communication and large data transfer, such as fast AF response with broader AF area, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer, and even the adjustment of the customizable Lens Control Ring for a quick and efficient user experience.

9 blade Circular Aperture: Thanks to its 9-blade, circular aperture, the RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM is capable of gorgeous, evocative out-of-focus areas and soft backgrounds. With an incredible level of control over background blur, the 9-blade circular aperture helps create intimacy and intensity in both photos and videos for impactful results.
