Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM is a specialty lens, perfect for portraits with a very shallow depth of field. Its unique view of the world earns it our Editors' Choice award.
  • Pros: Insane light-gathering capability. Capable of very shallow depth of field. Superb center sharpness.
  • Cons: Focus-by-wire design. No stabilization. Big. Expensive.

  • Excerpt: It takes a lot of glass to be that fast - and it sure looks nice. It is especially attractive with that red ring around the end of it - showing it's L-Series membership.

Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 USM L II - APS-C Lab Test / Review

photozone.de
7 January 2009
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 USM L II is one of the little wonders in the Canon lens lineup - at least on an APS-C DSLR. The center performance is nothing short of breathtaking and the borders are only slightly weaker. There's a bit of vignetting at f/1.2 but from a field perspective it's probably not a real issue and from f/2 onwards it's not relevant anymore. Distortions and lateral CAs are extremely well controlled.

  • Excerpt: Dyrt, men ekstrem kvalitet! Dyrt, middels raskt og tungt, men superb kvalitet på bildene. Trolig ett av Canons tre beste objektiver noensinne (i selskap med 135/2.0 og 200/1.8). Et drømmeobjektiv på 5D!
  • Pros: Sylskarp optikk som gir den ultimate sløring av bakgrunn. Suverent til bl.a. portretter og motiv hvor man vil ha bakgrunn ut av fokus. Autofokus raskere enn forventet (omtrent som Sigma 150/2.8 EX HSM). Tøyer grensene for hva som er mulig innendørs uten blitz :-)
  • Cons: Krevende å bruke da fokusområdet er svært snevert på full blenderåpning. Fungerer best på 1D-serien og 5D pga høye krav til nøyaktighet på autofokus. Relativt tungt med sine drøye 1kg. Nærgrensen på 95cm. Klønete å bruke med manuell fokus.
