Canon 1D MkIV + USM 85mm f1.8

The Canon 1D MkIV is a professional DSLR camera that offers high-speed performance and high-resolution images. It has a 16.1 megapixel APS-H CMOS sensor that gives a 1.3x crop factor and a wide ISO range of 100-12800, expandable to 50-102400. It can shoot up to 10 frames per second with a new autofocus system that has 45 AF points, 39 of which are cross-type. It also features HD video recording at 1080p resolution and a 3-inch LCD screen with 920,000 dots. The Canon 1D MkIV is the fifth generation of Canon's speed-oriented range of professional DSLRs, and the successor of the Canon 1D MkIII, which had some autofocus problems. The Canon 1D MkIV is designed to be durable and weather-sealed, with a magnesium alloy body and a shutter unit tested to 300,000 cycles.

The Canon USM 85mm f1.8 is a prime lens that offers excellent image quality and fast autofocus performance. It is ideal for portraits, weddings, and low-light photography, as it has a large aperture of f1.8 that allows for shallow depth of field and smooth bokeh. The lens also features a ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM) that provides quick and quiet focusing, as well as full-time manual focus override. The lens has a metal mount and a compact design, making it durable and easy to carry. The Canon USM 85mm f1.8 is compatible with both full-frame and crop-sensor cameras, and has a minimum focusing distance of 0.85m.
