Canon RF 85mm F1.2L Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

January 25th, 2020

Nearly 5 years ago Canon released its first prime lens to include a new technology called Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics.  When I reviewed that lens – the Canon EF 35mm F1.4L II – I concluded that it was the best non-supertelephoto lens that Canon had ever made.  I bought one myself not long thereafter and continue to love the lens.  I thought that certainly Canon would begin to include this technology in many more lenses, as it was clearly incredibly effective.  That hasn’t been the case, however.  But finally I hold in hand another lens sporting BR Optics, and it is another exceptional prime lens.  The Canon RF 85mm F1.2L takes the Zeiss Otus approach with a no-holds-barred approach to superlative performance irregardless of size and price.  It’s a big, heavy, expensive lens that also happens to be a portrait photographer’s dream.  This image gallery serves as a place to check out what it is capable of during my review process.  Stay tuned for new photos and my final coverage.  I’m reviewing this lens on a Canon EOS R body.
