canon rf 85mm review

Christopher Frost Photography posted their Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM review. The Canon RF 85mm f1.2L USM is the perfect portrait lens, combining a fast f/1.2 maximum aperture for soft background blur, with the 85mm focal length reckoned to give the best balance between flattering facial perspectives and a useful working distance. I tried to get rid of the ef85/1.2 as soon as the sigma art 85/1.4 came out and now I am happy with the RF. Canon started boldly with RF lenses that show what they can do, but now they come up with smaller, less fast and more affordable lenses, too. It's cool though. The Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM is one of the most impressive lenses released for the nascent RF system, and we've just updated our gallery of sample images. I applaud Canon for its technological achievements with the RF lenses to date, but I must say those big, heavy and expensive lenses are definitely not for me, an experienced enthusiast who has been using Canon cameras since the AE-1. Canon released two unique lenses with the Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM and RF 600mm f/11 IS STM. Canon RF 85mm F1.2 Review (vs. EF Version) Best Smartphone Gimbal (DJI OM 4, Zhiyun Smooth XS, Moza Mini MX) Tamron 70-300mm F4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Review (compared to Sony 70-300mm F4.5-5.6) The minimum focusing distance for the Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 RF lens is approximately 85.34 cm from the intended focal point. The new Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 doesn’t just beat Canon’s old 85mm f/1.2 DSLR lens, it also beats the new EF 85mm f/1.4, especially for wide-open sharpness and contrast. We're taking a look back through 2019 by focusing on one of our all-time favorite photographic subjects – Belvedere, a rescue pup who joined the DPReview team last fall and graced many of our sample galleries over the past 12 months. All the same, the 135mm f2DC Nikkor has your name all over it. HCB's most famous quote is: "sharpness is a bourgeois concept". Quite a claim. It has the added appeal of being equipped with in-lens IS and half macro, setting the new standard for EOS R system users. This lens is one reason why I have NO interest in Canon's R bodies. Enter the Ulanzi ST-09, an adjustable mount that allows you to turn an Apple Watch into a live viewfinder on the rear of your iPhone. @SteveAnderson: No, caucasian mainly. So I sold the body, the batterypack and the lenses and got me a second hand Leica Q. I no longer get that exceptional “couldn’t have made it with any other lens” picture the 85 was capable of wide open, but at least I’m back in photography with a camera that I don’t mind carrying and that delivers very beautiful images alltogether. bigger. You get what you pay for. Do people seriously expect classleading gear or whatever it is , is expensive and heavy? With a prime lens, you get one focal length and that focal length provides a specific angle of view.That angle of view drives focus distance decisions for desired subject framing and that resulting distance provides the perspective achieved.While there are many uses for an 85mm lens, the standout use is, as already alluded to, portrait photography. RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM is a medium telephoto, single focal length lens that is well-suited for portraits. As we’ve read and seen from other reviewers, this lens appears to be a big winner, especially once the price is considered. Although it’s a technical and marketing accomplishment, this lens is just a joke in terms of practicality. The strange mask looks nice, subjectively. Have a look at our initial sample gallery taken on a full-frame Sony body. Better start dreaming that in the magic world because it is not going to happen anytime soon. In many aspects the 85mm f/1.8 outperforms the exotic special-purpose Canon 85mm f/1.2L II that costs five times as much!. I think it's got the look you're seeking too. I like how Dpreview now complain about unbalanced camera body and big lens combination rather than the big lens. Perfection is overrated. I had the 85 1.4 L IS and it is really better, as we see in the test.I have bought/sold many lenses, seeking for the holy grail, and honestly I don’t want to seek anymore. But I also had missed there's an Apodized version of RF 85/1.2, which helps smooth the transition but reduces 1.5 EV and largely drives around maybe f1.8 with hints of f1.2. The RF 85mm f/1.2L USM is a very fast short telephoto prime lens for the Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system. I don't care about f1.2. Luckily it's protected by a fluorine coating. Michiel953, Are any of your portraits the more yellow Asian skin? I never liked grain in Nikon, since their first DSLR offering. Canon says its new lens is also suited to street photography and low light photography, though it’s likely to be categorised solidly as a ‘portrait’ lens by most photographers. Optics is so very complex and to find solutions so difficult, that I simply love all those extreme lenses I'll never be able to buy! Probably Canon will also come out with cheaper F4 an non-L lenses, but it makes complete sense for them to start with the high-end. Dustin Abbott has completed, what I think is the first in depth review of the Samyang 85mm F1.4 RF. What they didn't like: 'Size and weight make for awkward handling. Would be interesting to see this lens on a 5Dr with the older Canon colours H2D with the new R coming. I would love to see a Canon RF 85/2.8 with Defocus Control and Perpective Control. However it's worth noting that as a lens designed for portraiture, background bokeh quality will usually be more desirable than corner sharpness. My FB has all the recent work and yes, a lot of portraits, for which I mainly use the 58/1.4G, a magical lens. Price and weight... why are people complaining about that? Thats personal expression. For now, the app is in beta and limited to a handful of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, but as development continues, it's safe to assume support for other Android devices is on the way. 😉. Canon lenses fall in price faster than your amount of money at a bank for sure, If you wanna save your money buy precious metals. Thanks for sharing. @AshleyMC.. it certainly looks like your original post was a question.. followed by what seemed like @ Meerkato trying to give you an honest answer/response..being one could argue, helpful. So is this new lens better than both, and would it tempt a Canon owner to swap to the Canon mirrorless camera system just to get one? I do not see first Nikon DSLR still being used... @Bernie, does the Fuji MF has as good Eye-Af as the Canon? Sub-1” sensor is not “low end” and 35mm (FF) is not “high end”. If I had the cash to splash the 70-200 RF appeals more, even for portraits I'd prefer the zoom range. Just beautiful. it's a stunningly low price compared with Leica's Noctilux lenses, the only ones with which you can compare such a lens. Review Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM. But not smart enough to know that (1) M is APS-C, and (2) R and RP cannot be considered "high-end" full-frame camera bodies. With a little bit of research you certainly would know that several "middle of the road" lenses for the RF are in the works, also some "high-end/pro" RF bodies are supposed to be announced in the coming months. The out-of-focus highlights (bokeh balls) of the F1.4 look cleaner. Where is the logics? I managed to buy a FD 300 f4 L in early 80s when it came out and paid $1400!! When we first reported on the alleged ransomware attack back in August, Canon said it was 'investigating the situation.' I own some great glass but I also love my Helios 55mm that cost less than a filter.. Trust me, this lens has loads of "character" just like the RF 50 1.2. Finally picked mine up and OMG, what a lens. There was a problem. Dan is an EOS 5D Mark IV users and has both DSLR lenses, but by the end of this test he was looking seriously at Canon’s mirrorless system when he never was before. It's big, it's expensive, and it looks a bit odd on the EOS R body, but the Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM's performance is simply spectacular. I very much like all efforts to come closer to perfection. Chris and Jordan take a look at the new Sigma 35mm F2 and 65mm F2. If you compare the forehead between the eyes, I would say you would need to stop the new lens down to 2.8 to match the old one. It's inexpensive and works extremely well. Thanks for the recommendation. What follows are the headiest products of 2020, the ones photographers really want. The effect is similar to some specialized lenses from Fujifilm and Sony that contain comparable apodization elements. The ring-type USM autofocus is really fast, and the EOS R’s eye AF is extremely effective. So at F2 it would be as good but cheaper and lighter. The body is made of a combination of metal and high-quality plastic parts based on a metal mount. I did h2h comparisons as well which really showed the insanely good picture you get from this 85mm f1.2. Internal zoom: N/A Click on the gadget top right to see a full size version. To find out, we enlisted the help of a pro Canon portrait photographer Dan Pearce, who has owned and used both of those DSLR lenses. But I am also seeing that investment as I my last in the space as in reality, the 5DMKIII that it will be replacing is good enough. This wouldn’t be a problem on a big and chunky DSLR, but Canon’s RF bodies are designed to be smaller and lighter, and fitted to an EOS R the 85mm does give it a pretty front-heavy feel. But, for a paid portrait shoot, I would definitely rent it. It’s easy to measure this lens and deem it “ close to perfect” but is there any room for “character” ? Relaxed subjects appear unlikely to be captured with this lens. Certain other lens got the blame alone because they couldn't complain about the balanced combination. The R6 can be a nice option with some f1.8 primes to keep it small. Love all the slights in size and weight. Combining a 37MP full-frame sensor, minimalist controls and Lightroom Mobile built in, it's a refreshing – if a bit quirky – take on the smartphone-meets-camera concept. They don't have dark circles inside. Aiming to save photographers carrying a cable and a charger for every battery they use, this device handles up to four batteries at the same time and can charge at home, in the car and via a USB power bank. Prepare to begrudgingly bow to your new king. You are stuck in the “sensor size” thinking mode!!! Anyway, I can't wait how this Canon RF 85/1.2 will perform. NY 10036. Nine diaphragm blades, meanwhile, promise to keep the diaphragm round for nicer out-of-focus highlights. That analogy does not stand up. Its image quality wide open is quite superb, and the autofocus performance can deliver sharp ‘eye’ shots time and time again, even with the razor-thin depth of field at f/1.2. The Primoplan 75mm F1.9 II is a redesign of the original Primoplan 75mm F1.9 designed in 1936. I still use my EF 85 1.2 II frequently. I dont always use it wide open, but it is the best 85 I've ever owned. You can also just use the lens on a Nikon Z body? But this lens will be sitting on a 75-81mp R model sooner than later also. Right on, viggo. ... now canon needs only a fitting camera for it :D ...hopefully the rumors are true :-). If an 85mm F2 was as good at F2 as this F1.2 lens is, cost the same but was half the weight, they would buy it over the F1.2. And the lens we're looking at here is likely to be one of the most coveted RF-mount optics, partly because of its classic portrait-friendly focal length and super-wide aperture, but also because Canon bills it as having the finest optical performance of any autofocus-enabled 85mm lens the company has ever released. no life above F1.2? Meanwhile Canon also has a huge library of EF lenses to chose/adapt... so really do not understand your "issue" here. The 65mm T2 completes Vazen's set of anamorphic lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. Were you actually not really asking a question, but rather just trying to voice some kind of disapproval of a brand you supposedly use? I find the auto WB of my successive Nikon D8xx bodies (forgot really how my D700 performed in that respect) pretty reliable. Completely agree with you. By "extra pain" do you mean the hard-edged bokeh balls? While potentially very useful to dedicated portrait photographers, the fact that the DS technology comes at the cost of up to 1.5EV stops of light transmission, and also produces images with slightly deeper depth of field than the non-DS version explains why Canon has decided to give the photographer the choice of both options. Wow. Such super fast lenses are really complex, so Canon would not be able to produce it for a few hundred bucks. Fair enough. But, this sort of looks like the 'swan song' for Canon or all of the photo world. Man this must be the best anti-Canon jibe ever - Let's see: you have no interest in Canon because 'It is so perfect that it is boring' :-), Manny Ortiz shot the RF85/1.2 vs the Sony GM85/1.4 in a direct comparison some time ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHP5rLL1MVg. I don’t like how quickly detail jumps to a blurry mess. The best cameras for under $1000 should have good ergonomics and controls, great image quality and be capture high-quality video. Je moet daarbij wel rekening houden met het feit dat de Canon RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM niet tot 1:1 gaat zoals bijvoorbeeld de Canon EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM. That's like one who decides to never again visit a good restaurant but instead go frequently for KFC. Other optical enhancements include a UD (ultra-low dispersion) element and Canon’s ASC Air Sphere coating. Raw conversions via Adobe Camera Raw at (mostly) standard settings unless otherwise noted. Until you lug one around it's hard to easily say it's not heavy or too heavy. Nikon has a very wild colour science. I own the EF 85mm f1.2 L II USM and use it on the Sony A7r3. GAS is what the industry including this DPR site needs to survive ;), i only wish the RF lenses could be as small and light as those MF lenses. What’s the best camera for around $2000? The middle ground is coming. Yes, it is bulky but I never would trade it's special image rendering in for what a smartphone does. So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. Get the best camera deals, reviews, product advice, competitions, unmissable photography news and more! Primarily for perspective reasons, the classic portrait focal length ran… I am tired to read such comments... One has to accept the fact that the camera bodies have become smaller and lighter... Having a light body is an advantage in any case... You have to hold the combo by the lens... "No image stabilization"... That's rather an issue of the current R/RP bodies, but Canon will habe IBIS too, some day... Having used the similarly sized and roughly the same weight 105 f/1.4 Nikkor lens with a Z7 I can tell you that for some people and in some situations this is a lot of weight. The coating allows off-axis flux to pass through the periphery of the lens that gradually decreases the transmittance of light, which results in images with be… Now their AF system is top notch, ready to be deployed in a high-end camera - in 2018 a high-end model would have been a disappointment. Depending on which system you're in and what your needs are, they might just be the compact, well-priced and impressively sharp little primes you've been looking for. Chris and Jordan from DPReview TV also shot a gallery with the lens, but on Panasonic bodies. Smaller and lighter lenses are then made. Weather seals: Yes Helping to keep flare and ghosting down are Canon’s conventional multi-coatings, while a single application of the more advanced Air Sphere Coating (ASC) deals with ill effects from light passing either parallel or near parallel to the optical axis. Will this lens show its weakness with higher megapixel R5 sensor? But I would need to see a direct H2H sample comparison like I did myself with R/RP/a7RIII/7Dm2. Canon’s old 85mm f/1.2 lens was so slow as to make accurate focus quite tricky, but this new RF version has no such problems. As you'd expect for a high quality prime lens, fringing is very well controlled at all apertures. Vaporware no more: the much-speculated-about Zeiss ZX1 has arrived. Dan is an EOS 5D Mark IV users and has both DSLR lenses, but by the end of this test he was looking seriously at Canon’s mirrorless system when he never was before. You asked for the “sensible middle ground” between high end 35mm format and the far smaller sensor formats of phones. Respectfully, i don't think i could disagree more. More so, definitely NOT in my question above. The whole setup became so bulky and heavy that I found myself taking pictures with an iphone instead... a crying shame. Today, at its Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm revealed the details of its new Snapdragon 888 system on a chip (SoC) that, amongst performance and battery improvements, offers an array of impressive photographer features, should Android smartphone manufacturers choose to make the most of them. But if fast is not what you need, there should be f/1.8, f/2 or f/2.8 coming which is much smaller in size and affordable. But I personally love the more vintage character of the older EF 85 including all of its weaknesses, so I will keep it. 2) correct the R and RP are not high-end. The best cameras to buy in 2020: cameras for every user level and every lifestyle! Skin tone is a reliable aspect to judge the "correctness" of an image. I'd get mine at Adorama, at B&H or at Amazon. You probably mean in a Canon AF version, preferably RF but at least EF. what prevents smaller and lighter (and convenient!) 1. Digital Camera World is part of Future US Inc, an international media group and leading digital publisher. Well, this lens is stunning, no doubt. I tried a Nikon Z7 with their native lenses and they are almost Otus like (50/1.8 & 85/1.8) quality on acutance and image quality. Given the extremely shallow depth of field wide open, that’s very impressive. On the other hand to contradict myself, I did try once Nikon lens on Canon body and colors were much better. Canon's RF mount is still in its infancy, but that's not stopping the brand from flexing some muscle and releasing the ultra-fast, ultra-pricey 85mm F1.2L. Oh, and it's a lot of fun too. I think many people would jump at a cheaper, lighter F1.8 or F2 with the optical quality of this lens over the F1.2 and Canon know that. With a 1.8x squeeze, the lens produces a more pronounced anamorphic effect than the 1.33x lenses offered by Sirui, albeit at a much higher cost. Centre sharpness is superb throughout the aperture range, and even wide open at f/1.2. The Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM is another pocket friendly RF prime that punches way above its weight, obliterating the old EF 85mm f/1.8 and boasting corner sharpness superior to the almighty RF 85mm f/1.2L! Unflattering for a portrait lens. Senior Editor Barney Britton's Gear of the Year part two details how he ended up with a Reflex-Nikkor 1000mm F11, and despite its quirks, why it was ideal for a creative project in the COVID-era. You don’t need one. Canon's Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) element greatly refracts shorter wavelengths, ensuring blue wavelengths focus at the same plane as longer wavelengths like red and green. Though RF 85/1.2L demonstrates us it was a false assumption. Some people want higher quality, but don't want to tolerate the extra pain. Lol, that was a joke. The lens most worthy of being designated the Canon RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM Lens's predecessor, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens, remains an extremely popular model at review time — despite being 28 years old.With a focal length and relatively wide aperture combination ideally suited for our most important subjects, people, this ancient lens's usefulness was a key to … Hopefully your copy's switch is smoother than mine. Read our Canon RF 85mm F2 Macro review … What's up with your attitude? Well, the 24-70 f/2 from Canon that you like so much is actually a 28-70 f/2 so not a very interesting lens if you need 24mm.Add to this, that the Nikon Z 24-70 2.8 outperforms everyone else's 24-70 2.8 already and Nikon is doing just fine with the Z mount lenses.Wit regards to the Canon 85mm 1.2, this lens looks amazing and rumor has it that Nikon is going to announce multiple 1.2 lenses including an 85, so hopefully soon we will have an Z 85 1.2.For now I will continue to use my Z 85 1.8s which is class leading and outperforms most 1.4 lenses on the market, even when those lenses are stopped down to 1.8. Unusually, this is a group aspheric element, a much more time consuming and expensive process than the ‘glass-moulded’ aspheric elements usually used in modern lens manufacture. For some it's not even a price issue. Long story short, I will switch to Canon when the upcoming R5 offers a promised higher megapixel sensor and dynamic range. The 85mm … "Character" is not necessarily defined by optical flaws. I forgot to add the main attractiveness of the upcoming EOS R5 is its IBIS.
