  Like AMG-GTR, some products don’t need to be tested at all. Just look at the appearance and listen to the sound of exhaust to know the performance is extraordinary. The Canon RF85mm F/1.2L USM is such a product. Of course, the RF85mm F/1.2 will not be too high. The price is more than 17,000. For those who pursue the ultimate image performance, a little bit of effort can still be used. Affordable, of course, this lens is definitely worth the effort.

   Canon’s The 85mm F1.2 aperture lens is like a flag and a business card, it represents Canon. Just like the emperor’s prince, naturally any good thing will take the lead in thinking about it. This generation of RF85 1.2 lens is more like the only son of the emperor. What Niu X’s new technology is really used, as long as it is given by Canon.

   As mentioned in the movie line, what kind of BR lens, What ASC air coating, what grinding aspheric lens, add it to it, the aperture is directly F1.2, such a lens is a word-“sharp”.

   Of course, the image quality is directly proportional to the material used , Super high picture quality and super large aperture cannot do without sufficient material support. This RF85mm F/1.2L USM lens has a maximum diameter of 103.2mm, and the front filter has a diameter of 82mm, and the lens weighs 1195 grams.

Since the birth of   RF mount, it has been designed to adapt to short flange distance and large rear group caliber. At the same time, based on the special micro system, the RF mount also uses a different design from the EF mount lens. For example, the focus window is cancelled, and the quick control ring on the lens is added, which provides a new and fast experience for shooting.

   Canon RF85mm F1.2L USM still continues the design language of the RF system lens, although the lens adopts an optical structure of 13 elements in 9 groups, the closest focusing distance is reached 0.85 meters, including 1 UD lens, 1 ground aspheric lens, 1 BR optics and ASC coating black technology, but the overall design of the lens is still very compact, and the rear group protrudes to zoom in and the sensor The distance to further obtain better incident light, thereby improving imaging quality.

  RF85mm 1.2L this time still maintains the large rear lens aperture The fine tradition of EF 85 1.2L, but different from the previous EF 85 1.2L, this time the rear group of the lens has enough space to accommodate the contacts alone. This is also due to the design basis of the 54mm diameter of the RF bayonet.

   In addition, other designs on RF85 1.2L are basically the same as EF It is consistent with other RF lenses, the same simplicity, the same frosted spray material appearance, but there is a small difference from the EF 85 1.2L in the selection lever of the focus distance range, we did not have it before. Select, and now there is a “FULL and 1.5m-infinity” selection switch.

   This design should still be a consideration during video shooting. When it comes to video shooting, the RF85mm F1.2L is equipped with a ring-shaped ultrasonic motor that focuses quickly and softly. This is the first time I have used the 85 1.2 to feel fast to fly after using two generations of the old 85 1.2. I remember when I evaluated the EF 85 1.4L IS before, I thought that the 85mm fixed focus could be so fast! After using up the RF85 F1.2L this time, it feels like a car is changed to a sports car.

   resolution test F1.2 sharpness will appear

   In fact, most people are somewhat worried about F1.2 large aperture lens, because traditional knowledge tells us that Aperture lenses generally have no good effect when fully opened, only one and a half stops can be used. However, the RF85 F1.2L will break this traditional perception. From the point of view of real shots, even at the maximum aperture of F1.2, the sharpness of the center point has reached the peak, while the edge of the same focal plane is imaged in detail. Expressiveness is also not weak.

   The test samples in this group use EOS R+RF85mm F/1.2L The RAW shot was transferred directly with DPP. I specially photographed a group of objects with many lines. From the sample, the small fibers on the plush toy can be well represented and restored.

   Soft blur under F1.2 aperture

   The three elements of depth of field, distance, aperture, and focal length are indispensable. Undoubtedly, the RF85mm lens has a unique F1.2 aperture , It is a great satisfaction for the photographer. The 85mm medium telephoto can also easily create a blurred depth of field effect. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 0.85 meters and a close-up ability of 0.12 times magnification, which can also be further improved This lens creates the possibility of soft focus with shallow depth of field.

   From the point of view of the straight-out sample performance, the out-of-focus performance of this lens is too amazing, and there is no linearity at all At the same time, because the closest focusing distance is shortened to 0.85 meters, this lens can sometimes be used as a small macro. It can be said that the versatility is very high.

  Backlight performance is clear and no dispersion

  As a portrait mirror, RF85mm F/1.2L will naturally take into account the backlight situation that people often face when shooting portraits. After all, backlit shooting can Outline the model’s good-looking contour light, thereby increasing the overall three-dimensional sense of the character. Of course, backlight shooting puts high demands on the lens’ anti-glare, chromatic dispersion, and purple fringing control under high contrast.

  RF85mm F/1.2L is based on BR lens, UD lens and ASC coating technology, which can be said to be a nearly perfect solution to the problem of glare and dispersion.

   It should be said that with the blessing of Canon Black Technology, the imaging quality of this lens does not need to be worrying at all. In the past, when we used large aperture lenses, we had to shrink the aperture to avoid the problems of dispersion and purple fringing. On this lens, there is no need to think too much, it is perfect to use F1.2 directly.

  F1.2 Large Aperture Samples Portraits

   Portrait shooting should be the most anticipated part of this lens test! After all, as a new generation of “air cannon” portrait mirror king, most of the photographers who bought it home used to create portraits. Next, let’s take a look at the shooting strength of this head in portrait subjects.

  Large Aperture Sample Scenery Shooting

   Of course, in addition to portrait shooting at the 85mm middle focal length, I usually prefer to use it to shoot small street scenes because this focal length is not like a wide-angle storage There is too much content, and it’s not too thin like a telephoto lens. And equipped with F1.2 large aperture, it can use the large aperture to highlight the theme while explaining the environment. So as to create a picture with subject and environment.

   Who said that 85mm can’t climb stairs to take pictures of scenery, in fact this photo , It takes advantage of the 1.2 large aperture, because the glass of the hotel is very dirty, it can only be seen with a large aperture to blur the foreground. Sometimes it is difficult to control the depth of field at the focus when the aperture is too large, so I used F2.8 aperture to shoot.

   We said earlier Now, this lens has good picture quality at F1.2, and it can be used as the best aperture by shrinking the aperture to F2.8.

   Evaluation Summary Mirror King deserves his name

   After this period of actual shooting, the ultra-high image quality of this lens has surpassed that of the same type of lens currently on the market. A fixed-focus lens with a pass-through range. This lens responds to the old saying, you get what you pay for, and without real materials, how can you get these excellent imaging qualities.

   Let’s recall what black technologies are used in this lens ? BR optics, ASC air coating, ground aspheric lens and UD ultra-low dispersion lens. There are indeed a lot of black technologies integrated in this lens, and Canon has spared no effort in creating this lens.

  Combined with EOS R body, 30.3 million full-pixel dual-core AF CMOS sensor, equipped with this lens can achieve ultra-high-speed focusing experience, F1.2 full opening is the best aperture imaging quality, for EOS R The special micro system provides a card equivalent to Wang Zhan, and the title of Portrait King Mirror deserves its name.
