Official: Canon EF 85/1.4L IS, TS-E 50/2.8, 90/2.8L & 135/4L Macro
Canon has unveiled four new lenses tonight. There is a fast EF 85mm f/1.4L IS with 4-stop stabilization, nine-blade aperture and dust and weather-resistance. It's the cheapest at $1,599.

The other three are tilt and shift lenses: TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro and TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro. They feature enhancements such as molded aspherical glass, UD lenses and a larger tilt range compared to their predecessors.

The TS-E 50mm F2.8L and 135mm F4L use SubWaveLength Structure Coating to reduce ghosting and flare, and a new anti-reflective Air-Sphere Coating is used in the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L and TS-E 90mm f/2.8L lenses. All TS-E lenses are priced at $2,199.

I can see that 85 in my future. Price seems very reasonable.

And pretty reasonable pricing on all as well. This should also help maintain the resale value of the old 45 and 90. Can't wait for all four.

The 85L 1.4 will be at home on my 1DsIII and the IS will allow me to keep the ISO lower and the TS-E50L might be a great pano lens.

Merry Christmas

The 85 f/1.4L IS looks great in terms of price and features. I'm eagerly awaiting reviews.

I'm excited! The perspective control lenses are the main reason I use Canon. If they are anywhere near as good as the TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II (which I am sure they will be) I'll have to get the 50mm and 135mm.

Great lenses for sure!

Anyone have an idea why no one has BR tech from the 35II ?

The price of that 85 is good...maybe too good.
Let's hope it will not hide an average glass.

Agreed. If the AF holds up I will get it for indoor dancing and gymnastics. Just wish the release date was earlier then late November.

Sure looks like they paid close attention to the rendering on these lenses, and especially on the 85/1.4L IS.

Also didn't see any CA, longitudinal or otherwise- maybe the BR glue wasn't needed?

Curious about distortion on the TS-E 50 Macro. If it has zero distortion (<0.1%), I may get one for copy work.

I agree this is suspicious for Canon. I was expecting the price to land much closer to the $2000 number. I had little hope that it would out-resolve the S85A based on the dimensions and that's ok for most people I think. Very few people complain about the sharpness of the current 85L -- it's mostly the terrible CA under f/2 and AF speed. The 35L II is kind of a freak in that they produced Otus-level IQ with fast AF and weather sealing. 85mm is for whatever reason a hard FL to design so perhaps it was unreasonable to expect a similar result and keep the size smaller than the S85A.

However, if they managed to achieve current 85L resolution, IS, better CA control, and turbo AF speed, I think this is going to be a HUGE win for the target audience.

Has anyone seen the theoretical MTF for the 85 yet?

No, unlike almost every other lens release from Canon, there are no MTF charts for any of the new lenses published on the official USA pages.

I will probably end up getting the 85, 50 and 90. Planning to start with the 85mm, I hope it is as good as other recent canon lenses.

Has Canon released any disappointing L prime in last 7 years I can't think of one. In general almost all recent L lenses have been stellar (apart maybe from 24-105 II and 24-70 from what I have read).

Very excited about the 50mm Macro TS-E! Looking forward to trying one. Actually excited about all the new lenses.
