    Canon 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Announcement

      News

    Today, the impressive family of Canon lenses got extended by a few new models. One of the lenses which is having its premiere today, and possibly the most important one, is the 85mm f/1.4L IS USM model. It is the first 85mm Canon lens with image stabilization.

    The lens consists of 14 lenses placed in 10 groups. As could be expected of this series, only the highest-quality elements are included in it. They are supposed to ensure the correction of chromatic aberration and offer high optical quality.


    In addition, the ASC (Air Sphere Coating) coating has been used in the lens. This layer, with an ultra-low refractive index, is to eliminate ghosting and flare effects.

    Besides, the lens is also equipped with the electro-magnetic diaphragm (EMD), which consists of nine blades, and a novelty – optical image stabilization, whose effectiveness, as the produced promises, will be 4EV.

    The new Canon is, of course, equipped with the ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM). The lens is also sealed against water and dust. The front lens is covered with a fluoride coating, which is to hinder dirt sticking.

    Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is to appear on sale in November and it will cost $1600.

      In a set with new macro lenses, Canon also presented the next version of MT24EX flash. Canon MT26EXRT Twin Lite, as the new model is called, is a perfect proposal for macro, product and food photographers. 
       
      As can be "easily" concluded from its name, the flash has a guide number of 26 for ISO 100 and the power of the flash can be reduced to 1/512 of its maximum power.

      Full reload takes 5.5 seconds, with the use of regular batteries, and 2.5 seconds, with the use of CPE4N batteries. Besides, the flashes are equipped with supporting diodes and diffusors.

      Of course, we also have a head with removable rings in a set, thanks to which we will be able to mount the full set on various lenses.

      Canon has made an attempt to steal some splendor from Nikon and it decided to focus on both quantity and quality. The next lenses which are having their premieres today are three tilt-shift macro constructions: TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO and TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO.

      These lenses, thanks to rich possibilities of focus and perspective control, will enable both professionals and more advanced enthusiasts to work even more creatively. The lenses will perfectly fulfill their functions not only in macro photography but also in landscape and portrait photography as well as in movie-making.

      Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO will be a perfect solution for architecture and landscape photography. It is equipped with 12 lenses placed in 9 groups.
       

      1). Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO
       
      The TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO model is the lens consisting of 11 elements placed in 7 groups. Apart from macro photographers, it should also find its way to the bags of many portrait and wedding photographers.
       

      2). Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO
       
      Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO, just like its predecessor, consists of 11 elements placed in 7 groups. The macro lens has a bit longer focal length which should perfectly fulfill its role outside, and a longer portrait lens.
       

      3). Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO
       
      All three lenses are equipped with the optical solutions which enable one to reduce the refraction of light, which hinders accurate focus. Ultra-low dispersion lenses make it possible to achieve better sharpness of the image. The used lens is to ensure the highest quality of the image and its full clarity.

      Tilt-shift in the presented constructions makes it possible to rotate the lens vertically and horizontally, which enables one to minimize all kinds of perspective distortion and regulate the depth of field. We also have a possibility of blocking this rotation in neutral position in order not to change it during the normal use of the lens.

      All three lenses will appear on sale in November and each will cost around $2200.
