85MM F/1.8 Aspherical Lens for Canon

The Vivitar 85mm F1.8 Aspherical Lens opens up new photographic opportunities you'd never get with a zoom.  The focal length and aperture make it a great portrait lens.  When shooting in bright conditions with fast shutter speeds and low ISOs, you'll create beautiful subject separation, and backgrounds which melt away into soft colors. 

The aspherical multi-coated optics ensure bright, razor sharp images.  It has a nicely damped and rubber-clad focus ring, allowing for smooth focus pulls and precision focusing.  Due to its internal focusing mechanism, the physical size of the lens remains constant.  The Vivitar 85mm lens is also a great choice for DSLR videographers.  The lens mounted aperture ring works just like a professional video camera.

The lens comes with a removable lens hood, caps, and pouch, along with a five year warranty.  Whether you are an amateur photographer, or a professional looking for an affordable portrait lens, the Vivitar 85mm F/1.8 is the perfect choice.
