The 85mm Prime is a go to lens for numerous Portrait Photographers. There are plenty of 85mm options to choose from and the list just got longer. Canon is all set to announce their 85mm 1.4 L IS lens this summer.
“We’re thinking the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS will be announced sometime in Q2/early Q3 but we hope to nail down an announcement date soon.” the article from Canon Rumours reads.
Recently DxO Mark gave the Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art its highest ever rating (details here). Canon already offers two 85mm primes, the 1.8 and the 1.2L. The new 1.4L will be directly competing against the 85mm 1.4 Art from Sigma which has already made its place in the market. It will be interesting to see how Canon prices the new lens. The L series of lenses are known for their hefty price tags but Canon is trying to reclaim a lost market share.
We can barely wait for the new Lens. What do you think? Let us know in the comments down below.
