The Canon EF 85mm F1.2L II USM offers faster autofocus than the older Mark I version of this lens, and represents a considerable step up in quality (as well as size, weight and cost) from the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM. A circular aperture diaphragm gives attractive rendition of out-of-focus backgrounds, and optical construction includes an aspherical lens element to minimise aberrations. A ring-type ultrasonic focus motor ensures silent AF (although it's not especially fast), with electronically-driven full-time manual focus.
