Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM - Overview

(From Canon lens literature) The RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM medium telephoto lens expands on the versatility of bright, macro, IS equipped prime lenses built for the EOS R system. With a focal length of 85 millimeters and a bright, maximum aperture of f/2 for beautiful bokeh, this versatile lens is a great choice for portraits and street photography, as well as low light scenes or during concerts, and with the addition of macro capability, even close-up and macro photography will provide stellar results.

The RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM is a light weight, affordable lens that boasts high image quality and an impressive optical image stabilization system offering up to 5 stops of shake correction ideal for low-light scenes or when recording video, and featuring Hybrid IS enables stabilization when focusing on macro, close-range subjects. Like the RF35mm F1.8 Macro IS USM, it also includes half-size macro functionality allowing for a minimum focusing distance as close as 1.15ft. With a built-in customizable control ring and a fast 12-pin communication system, the RF85mm F2 Macro IS STM is an ideal travel companion for your portrait, macro, low-light, and video needs.

The RF85mm F2 MACRO IS STM lens is scheduled to be available in October 2020 for an estimated retail price of $599.99

    Sharp and much smaller and lighter than the EF 105mm Macro lens it replaced.

    My second RF lens purchase after the R7 I bought this summer. It's bigger and heavier than the 18-150mm kit lens, but much sharper and brighter.

    And it's smaller, lighter, and brighter than the EF 105mm f/2.8 macro lens I *hadn't* been using.
