Ideal Focal Length


135mm is a unique focal length that gives a specialised look with its compression of a mid-telephoto lens. The focal length enables a different perspective when shooting a portrait and allows you to stay at a comfortable distance between you and the subject.

Amazing Background Separation

Combining the unique focal length of 135mm and f/1.8 aperture, you will be able to achieve a beautiful background blur that makes the subject pop.


Beautiful Bokeh

You can get amazing-looking bokeh throughout the apertures through the lens design and the 9 aperture blades that forms a circular diaphragm.

The bokeh has rounded edges that make the background blur even smoother.

Low-light Superiority

The large aperture of f/1.8 will allow you to use higher shutter speeds when shooting indoors, especially under challenging lighting conditions.


Stable Shots

Capture sharp images handheld, even in dim settings.

The RF135mm f/1.8L IS USM has 5.5 stops of image stabilisation and can achieve up to 8 stops through Coordinated Control IS, when combined with compatible cameras equipped with In-Body Image Stabilizer.


Get a little closer to your subject while maintaining a distance.

The lens provides up to 0.26x magnification with a minimum focusing distance of 0.7m, allowing you to be at a comfortable distance while getting a close-up shot with beautiful smooth bokeh.

2 Function Buttons

There are two dedicated customisable function buttons on the body of the lens for you to access a specific function quickly.

These functions include AF features, exposures, aperture, IS function and many more. 

Dedicated Rings

Canon's distinctive knurled control ring allows you to control AF area, shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, ISO, white balance, colour temp and even Picture Style.

There is also a separate focusing ring for manual focus.

Shock-, Dust- & Drip-resistance

The lens is designed with high durability in mind, and it has both shock and vibration resistance.

With the dust-and-drip-resistant construction all around, RF135mm f/1.8L IS USM can keep dust and water droplets out.


This compact ultrasonic motor provides high-speed AF. The innovative AF actuator is suitable for high-precision micro-driving and delivers high performance even during movie recording and live-view shooting.

Air Sphere Coating

Suppresses ghosting and reduces flare from your images through the innovative use of an anti-reflection technology that forms an ultra-low-refractive index layer on the elements within the lens.

UD Lenses

This lens uses three single Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) lens elements with low refraction and low dispersion, reducing axial and magnetic chromatic aberrations to deliver higher image quality.

Fluorine Coating

Smudge-resistant fluorine coating on the front and back lens prevents moisture and oil from sticking.

You can easily wipe off the oil with a dry cloth without using a solvent.
