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.
