Canon RF 85mm 1.2L USM Review

ePhotoZine has delivered their review of the Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM.  

They basically found no real fault with the lens, with the only negatives being;

  • No Image Stabilisation
  • High price
  • Not stable on a flat surface (larger than the camera body)

Meanwhile, they liked;

  • Outstanding sharpness
  • Virtually no distortion
  • Very low CA
  • Beautiful bokeh
  • Highest quality manufacture
  • Very resistant to flare
  • Fast and very accurate AF
  • Weather-resistant

In their conclusions, they state;

The quality of the lenses arriving on the market has arguably never been better. There are some amazing optics and the only downside seems to be that the prices can be equally amazing. The more adventurous the specification of course, the higher that price will be. Thankfully there are still plenty of lower-cost alternatives around, the usual trade-off is that they have more restricted apertures and maybe lighter construction.

But this is a high spec and expensive lens, and, as always, if the photographer can afford it and it fits the need, then buy with confidence as the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM absolutely delivers the goods. The highest quality standards and ease of use add up to a very attractive proposition.
