What Is the Best 85mm Lens for Canon Mirrorless Photographers?

A good 85mm lens is one of the most valuable optics many photographers have in their gear bags, and as such, high demands are placed on manufacturers to produce sharp and fast devices that get the job done reliably. If you are a Canon mirrorless shooter, this great video review will help you choose the right 85mm lens for your work. 

Coming to you from Gordon Laing, this great video review takes a look at the RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM and how it compares to the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM and the ever-popular EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens. No doubt, a good 85mm lens has helped build many careers, and there is a huge range of options in terms of maximum aperture, cost, image quality, autofocus performance, size and weight, and more, and it can be tricky knowing which one is right for you. One advantage the RF 85mm f/2 has, of course, is its macro capabilities (1:2), which can make it a more versatile option for someone like a wedding shooter, who needs to get detail shots in addition to portraits. Plus, it is far lighter than its f/1.2 cousin. Check out the video above for Laing’s full thoughts.
