Canon 85mm f/1.8

Available Today

The 85mm f/1.8 is nearly as sharp as the Canon 85mm f/1.2L but focuses faster is often preferred for action shots for that reason. It’s also much smaller and easier to handle. A number of photographers use this lens for indoor sports in smaller venues such as high school basketball, hockey, etc. It also serves well as a portrait lens.

I’m always amused when people compare the Canon 85mm f/1.8 to the Canon 85mm f/1.2L. They are two entirely different creatures with nothing in common, except that they’re the same focal length. Well, that and they’re both really sharp…and a wide aperture. Other than that though…

Seriously, the f/1.8 is the opposite of the f/1.2 in two really important ways: 1) it’s small and lightweight and 2) it focuses as fast as you please, which makes it one of the best indoor sports lenses for those small and not-too-well-lit high school gyms. In those situations, when f/2.8 just isn’t wide enough, this is the lens to grab.
