Canon RF 85 mm F1.2 L USM
The Canon RF 85/1.2 L is an large, heavy and expensive piece of glass. I have tested it for a few weeks now on the EOS R and it’s:
- Fabulously sharp from center to edge @ f/1.2. Sharper than the RF 50/1.2.
- Extremely well corrected – almost no CA and purple fringing wide open. Extreme improvement compared to the EF 85/1.2 LII and even better corrected than the RF 50/1.2.
- Fast. The AF is fast and correct. No more hit and miss as with the EF 85LII as long as as you do your thing right with your focus points
- Working very well with the Eye Detection AF on the EOS R (since firmware 1.2). A game changer for me.
