An ideal focal length for portraiture, the Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens is a short-telephoto prime designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs. Incorporating one Low Dispersion element and one Extra Low Dispersion element into the optical design, this Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens for Canon is adept at reducing chromatic aberrations and color fringing for a high degree of clarity and color accuracy, as well as sharpness and resolution. BBAR and eBAND coatings have also been applied to minimize flare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in strong lighting conditions, and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality to benefit shallow depth of field imagery. Classic in terms of focal length yet optimized for the recent breed of high-resolution DSLRs, this portrait-length prime melds a familiar perspective with contemporary performance.
