In Stock - Supplier Despatch

The 85mm f1.8 VC USD (F016) for Canon DSLRs is part of the Tamron SP prime lens series, and features excellent edge-to-edge optical performance even at the maximum f1.8 aperture, making it ideal for low light shots and for isolating a subject against a background. The 85mm focal length is the classic portrait focal length, and is also ideal for stage shots. Coupled with the super-fast and silent autofocus and Vibration Compensation, this lens will produce superb results in the most challenging conditions.
