Canon has been on a roll with its RF line of lenses, pushing the boundaries of optical design, with many reviews noting their stunning optical quality as well. This great review takes a look at one of the best of the bunch, the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens.
Coming to you from Ted Forbes with The Art of Photography, this helpful video review takes a look at the new Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens. I have had the EF version of this lens for a few years now, and I absolutely love its character and the way it renders subjects, but it also leaves a lot of room for improvement when it comes to wide open sharpness and control of chromatic aberration. Canon seems to have leaped forward by quite a bit in that department, as the RF version offers impressive sharpness even near maximum aperture, while still showing off the gorgeous bokeh of its EF predecessor and also showing much less chromatic aberration. On the other hand, it is pretty bulky and pricey, though it you are looking for the best of the best, it seems like quite the lens. Check out the video above for Forbes' full thoughts.
