The latest Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lens will be a perfect reason to choose mirrorless cameras of this producer for many professionals. It seems the lens, announced not so long ago, will be a great choice.
The optical system is based on 13 lenses placed in 9 groups, in which we will find both apsherical lenses, and the UD element, which is to guarantee perfect resolution within the whole frame. The producer boasts that it is the lens of the highest resolution within the RF series. The Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics technology, which is supposed to limit chromatic aberration almost to zero, has been applied in the lens. We also have ASC coatings (AIr Sphere Coating), which limit light leaks and flares.
