Canon RF 85mm F1.2: Interview with the designers

Canon Europe did an article with the designers of the Canon RF 85mm 1.2L USM asking 10 questions about the various aspects of the design of the Canon RF 85mm 1.2L USM.

Just to whet your appetite on what will be one of Canon's premier special lenses;

How sharp is the lens, really?

Kaishi: "When we were developing this lens, many performance tests were carried out repeatedly on a prototype. When shooting at the widest aperture setting using Eye Detection AF in portrait photography, our test photographers spontaneously let out cries of excitement when they saw how sharp the photos were. 

"The Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM thoroughly suppresses chromatic aberration and delivers photos with high resolution and high contrast in focused areas. We believe the particular appeal of this lens is in its widest aperture setting. We hope that users who have always stopped down a bit during shooting will enjoy the photos that can now be captured when shooting at f/1.2."
