Canon 85mm f/1.4L IS Leaked With 3 New Tilt-Shift Macro Lenses


A new 85mm lens from Canon has been rumored since early 2017, and today we have our first look at it thanks to a photo and spec leak. This is the upcoming Canon 85mm f/1.4L IS.

The Japanese site Nokishita Camera published the leak and reports that the Canon 85mm f/1.4L IS will feature a 9-blade circular aperture, Air Sphere Coating (ASC) for reducing flaring and ghosting, Fluorine coating for repelling dust/grease/water/dirt, 14 elements in 10 groups (with one aspherical lens), a minimum focusing distance of 85cm (~2.8ft), a 77mm filter diameter, dimensions of 88.6×105.4mm (~3.49×4.15in), a weight of 950g (~2.09lbs), 4 stops of image stabilization, and ring type USM.

Three other tilt-shift macro lenses were also leaked at the same time: the Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro, and TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro.

All three lenses feature 9-blade circular apertures, a maximum magnification of 0.5x, and fluorine coating.

The Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro will have 11 elements in 7 groups, Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) for suppressing reflections, a minimum focusing distance of 48.6cm (~1.59ft), and a filter diameter of 82mm.

The Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro has 9 elements in 9 groups, ASC coating, a minimum focusing distance of 39cm (1.28ft), and a 77mm filter diameter.

Finally, the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro (not pictured) has 12 elements in 9 groups, SWS and ACS coatings, a minimum focusing distance of 27.3 cm (~0.9ft), and a filter diameter of 77mm.

An official announcement for these lenses should be arriving in the coming days, so stay tuned.
