Canon 85mm f1.2 RF lens
The RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lens offers the highest resolution of a Canon lens to date, featuring a very bright aperture and spectacular autofocus (AF) speeds, making it ideal for capturing spontaneous portraits and wedding photography. According to Canon's new lens development plan, announced in February, the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM is the first of six RF mount lenses to be unveiled Canon throughout 2019. This lens, endorsed by award-winning Canon Europe Ambassador Félicia Sisco, will take users of the legendary EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM to the next level of performance. The six RF lenses will offer incredible quality and versatility to those looking to capture the perfect photograph.
Impressive resolution in every detail
Designed for the EOS R System, the RF mount redefines the possibilities of photography and video, providing tools for users to improve their knowledge and capture images creatively without limitations. Developed by leveraging technological advances as well as user feedback and observations, the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM uses the advanced capabilities of the RF mount to improve image quality and communication between lens and body of full-frame mirrorless cameras.
This short 85mm telephoto lens offers the ideal focal length for portraits and flattering perspectives of faces. The RF 85mm f/1.2L USM is the second lens in the Canon range, after the EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM, which uses Canon's unique BR optical technology, which efficiently corrects axial chromatic aberration, which cannot be fully corrected with a combination of traditional glass lenses. to improve resolution and sharpness. The aspherical and UD lenses, which guarantee high image quality in all shots, reduce optical aberrations of the lens, ensuring spectacular optical performance.
Great luminosity, high quality
The RF 85mm f/1.2L USM is one of the brightest autofocus lenses in Canon for its range of full-frame mirrorless cameras. When combined with the short tele focal length and Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the bright f/1.2 aperture creates dramatic shallow depth of field, bokeh and background separation. The aperture of the lens makes the subject stand out from the image, while its nine-blade aperture system makes the subject stand out against a softly blurred background, ideal for portrait photography. Its large aperture allows 50% more light to pass through than with an f/1.4 lens, for shooting in difficult lighting situations, up to -6 EV (EOS R) and -5 EV (EOS RP), to capture the environment in every moment and situation.
With the same ring-type USM motor that incorporates the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM, the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM ensures that sharp focus is found quickly and accurately, so that objects can be followed as they move throughout the frame. Combined with a new microprocessor, which uses a new high-performance CPU unit and new firmware, this lens uses the EOS R system, increasing data transfer, which translates into faster operation and autofocus (AF), allowing the photographer to capture the most fleeting decisive moments.
Exceptional handling and durability
The RF Canon lenses incorporate a control ring, in which TV, AV, ISO and exposure settings can be programmed, which adds a layer of customization, which makes it ideal for wedding photographers, who need to program the settings both to capture spontaneous moments and for beautiful poses. This lens is also equipped with a permanent manual focus ring, which allows manual focusing by simply turning it, without the need to switch to manual focus (MF) mode. Ideal for shooting outdoors or in your chosen location, the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM features the renowned L-Series waterproof protection, with sealing for protection from harsh weather conditions when shooting outdoors or outside the studio
