The 85mm is the favorite lens of many portrait photographers. The 85mm f/1.2 RF was introduced last year, and it has become a choice of those who switched to Canon’s EOS R mirrorless system. But can it beat the good old EF version of the 85mm f/1.2? Chris and Jordan of DPReview were eager to find out, so they made a comparison test of the two versions of this lens.
Earlier this year, Canon announced six new lenses along with the Canon EOS RP, the new mirrorless camera. There was no word on when they were going to be launched, but the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM is now ready for preorders. It’s the first lens of the announced batch to be launched, so let’s see what it has to offer.
