NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 29, 2017) - B&H Photo would like to share Canon's announcement of the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens, a new portrait-length L-series prime featuring IS; three new L-series TS-E tilt-shift macro lenses, a 50mm f/2.8, 90mm f/2.8, and a 135mm f/4; the MT-26EX-ET Macro Twin Lite, a flash designed for close-up shooting and updated with wireless radio triggering; and a new entry-level mirrorless camera, the EOS M100.

A highly desirable lens for portrait photography, the short telephoto EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM features a notably fast f/1.4 maximum aperture for shallow-depth-of-field shooting along with optical image stabilization to suit working handheld in low-light conditions. This new prime also features an updated optical design, which contains one aspherical element, and individual elements feature an Air Sphere coating to suppress lens flare and ghosting. Additionally, a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor provides fast, quiet autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override.

Conversely to the 85mm f/1.4, Canon is also releasing a trio of specialized tilt-shift optics that brings the full line of perspective control lenses to the L-series. Replacing the former 45mm f/2.8 is a new TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro, which offers +/- 8.5° of tilt and +/- 12mm of shift in addition to a 10.6" minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects. Two UD elements are also used to limit chromatic aberration and color fringing for high clarity and color accuracy. Slightly longer, the updated TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro has a greater +/- 10° of tilt and the same +/- 12mm of shift for adjusting focus and composition, and this lens also uses one UD element to eliminate color fringing. As with the 50mm f/2.8, this lens has a 0.5x maximum magnification to benefit its use in macro applications. Finally, a new focal length for the tilt-shift genre, the TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro is a telephoto lens offering +/- 10° of tilt and +/- 12mm of shift, making it desirable for product and tabletop shooting. This lens, again, features a pair of UD elements to produce imagery with a high degree of clarity and color accuracy.

With both heads in use at full power, a guide number of 85.3' at ISO 100 is possible, and extensive manual control lets you dial-down the power to just 1/512 output. Additionally, the MT-26EX-RT supports high-speed sync, both flash heads include removable diffusers, and a dot matrix LCD screen is featured for easy settings adjustment.

Rounding out Canon's announcement is the new EOS M100 camera, a new entry-level model for its growing mirrorless system.

Combined, the sensor and processor afford improved sensitivity to ISO 25600, as well as faster shooting up to 6.1 fps with AF lock or 4 fps with AF for working with moving subjects. Full HD 1080p video recording is also supported at 60 fps, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF benefits video recording and stills shooting with faster, smoother autofocus performance. The M100 also incorporates a 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD, for intuitive settings and playback control, and has a tilting design to suit working from high and low angles. Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth connectivity is also available for sharing your images wirelessly with a mobile device or for remotely shooting from your smartphone or tablet.
