Canon makes a lot of fantastic portrait lenses that fit a wide range of needs, aesthetic preferences, price ranges, and more. Four of their best are the RF 85mm f/1.2 L USM, RF 100mm f/2.8 L Macro IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L USM, and RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM, and this excellent video comparison takes a look at all four to help you decide which is right for you.
Coming to you from Katelyn James, this great video review compares the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 L USM, RF 100mm f/2.8 L Macro IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L USM, and RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lenses for portraiture. While you might prefer the versatility of a zoom or the extreme aperture of the 85mm f/1.2, don't overlook the 100mm or 135mm options. Macro lenses, being sharp and relatively lightweight, tend to make for excellent portrait lenses, plus you get the added close-up capabilities, making them great for wedding photographers, who need both ring shots and portraits. Meanwhile, the 135mm f/2L, though discontinued, is one of the best hidden gems in Canon's large library, offering beautiful, contrasty images at a much more affordable price than many other portrait options. And it is still widely available on the used market. Check out the video above for the full rundown from James.
