Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this great review takes a look at the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lens. This lens is the mirrorless version of the beloved EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM, one of Canon’s most famous lenses. While a fantastic portrait lens with a very distinctive look, the EF version still had plenty of room for improvement, particularly when it came to autofocus performance and wide open sharpness. Luckily, it has been 14 years since the release of the EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM, meaning the RF version has had years of improvement put into it, and there is definitely a noticeable improvement. It certainly isn’t cheap, but if you are looking for the best of the best, it looks to be a winner. Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts.
