NEWS: Canon Announces RF 85MM F1.2L USM BR

 

Canon announced the development of six new RF lenses back in February this year and the first one to be officially announced is the eagerly anticipated RF 85MM F1.2L USM BR, which is promising to be a favourite amongst wedding and portrait photographers.

For beautiful flattering portraits with razor sharpness and superb low-light performance, the RF 85mm F1.2L USM offers the ultimate in creative potential. The lens employs Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) optics which negate colour aberrations while a ground aspheric lens element eliminates spherical aberrations caused by a large maximum aperture.

Portraits

Use shallow focus and exceptional sharpness to bring new detail and dimension to portraits, thanks to exceptional optical engineering, RF mount technology and advanced lens coatings.

Street photography

Stay discreet and in control on the street thanks to rapid focusing from a high performance USM motor that ensures the lens locks onto a subject, so you’ll never miss a moment.

Low light

Keep on shooting long after the sun goes down thanks to a fast and wide f/1.2 maximum aperture that captures every detail with superb edge to edge sharpness and beautiful bokeh. Wedding photographers can shoot for longer without having to resort to obtrusive artificial lighting.

Advanced lens elements and coatings

The lens employs Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) optics which negate colour aberrations while a ground aspheric lens element eliminates spherical aberrations caused by a large maximum aperture.

Fast USM motor and Lens Control Ring

Thanks to the fast speed of the RF mount, the RF 85mm F1.2L USM is fast to lock onto a subject whilst the Lens Control Ring provides additional control over settings.

 

The new Canon RF 85MM F1.2L USM BR is expected in the second half of this year and will be available for hire, HERE. If you would like to be added to the waiting liist, get in touch!
