In (Ann. Probab. 43 (2015) 528.571), we proved that the renormalized critical Ising magnetization fields φa:= a15/8 σ x∈aℤ2 Σx δx converge as a → 0 to a random distribution that we denoted by φ. The purpose of this paper is to establish some fundamental properties satisfied by this φ and the near-critical fields φ∞,h. More precisely, we obtain the following results. (i) If A ⊂ ℂ is a smooth bounded domain and if m = mA := <φ, 1A denotes the limiting rescaled magnetization in A, then there is a constant c = cA > 0 such that log ℙ[m > x]x →∼-cx16. In particular, this provides an alternative way of seeing that the field φ is non-Gaussian (another proof of this fact would use the explicit n-point correlation functions established in (Ann. Math. 181 (2015) 1087-1138) which do not satisfy Wick's formula). (ii) The random variable m = mA has a smooth density and one has more precisely the following bound on its Fourier transform: |E[eitm]| ≤ e-c|t|16/15. (iii) There exists a one-parameter family φ∞,h of near-critical scaling limits for the magnetization field in the plane with vanishingly small external magnetic field.
