PhotographyBlog: Canon RF 50mm F1.2L USM Review

PhotographyBlog released their review for the well-reviewed Canon RF 50mm 1.2L.  They found the lens big, heavy, expensive, and image quality to match.  Which is no surprise, everyone so far that has reviewed the lens has found the image quality to be excellent with this lens.

From their conclusion;

The Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is an incredible lens with a pretty incredible price-tag. It's easily one of the best 50mm lenses that we've ever reviewed, from any brand, but it's also one of the biggest and most expensive too. If you really love the combination of the 50mm focal length and f/1.2 aperture (and who wouldn't), then you need this lens in your life, but more casual users may prefer to use an adapted Canon EF 50mm lens instead.

Image quality is simply incredible, as you'd expect for a lens of this caliber. Sharpness is simply superb throughout the aperture range and at both the centre and edges of the frame, distortion is negligible, and chromatic aberrations very hard to find. The only blot on the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM's copybook is obvious vignetting at f/1.2, requiring you to stop down to f/4 to completely remove it. Otherwise, the ability to shoot wide-open at f/1.2 and create some wonderful bokeh effects thanks to the 10-bladed aperture quickly becomes intoxicating, especially as you can successfully shoot in near darkness with the EOS R camera.

At a glance;

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.2 to f/16
  • One UD Element, One Aspherical Element
  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 10-Blade Diaphragm
