Canon EF 85mm F/1.2 II USM Review
The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM is one of the prestigious camera lenses in the Canon EF series. This is a powerful lens that will definitely serve you very well in so many different and dynamic aspects.
The camera boasts of ergonomic features and is definitely one of the best camera lenses that you can get in the market presently. Nonetheless, this camera lens is a little bit expensive and thus you must be prepared to part with a good amount of money in order to acquire this prestigious camera lens. Nonetheless, if you are able to afford the camera lens, you will definitely get back value for your money as this lens will serve you just as you want. There are several features and qualities that we are going to look at below that makes the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM stand out as one of the best camera lenses available. First impression of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM is fairly good.
The lens is not very long but it is quite wide; measuring about 3.3X3.6 inches. However, the short length serves as a good thing as the camera can easily be carried around in small bags. The lens also weighs around 2.3 pounds which is quite heavy but not very heavy to make you tired carrying it all day long. Generally these lenses have a good design that is appealing at first sight and would definitely suit your needs. Once you have purchased the lenses you would be rewarded with a free soft case for carrying the lenses around which is generous thing from the manufacturing company considering that many of the companies that produce camera lenses do not offer such goodies.
The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM is a bit advanced in design and one thing that you wouldn’t fail to notice is that the focus design is electronic. This means that the focus ring wouldn’t be activated or work: unless the lens is mounted to a powered-on camera. Again, the focus ring is located near the front lens and when you turn it, it turns the whole barrel which is quite awkward as compared to the other conventional styles used in building camera lenses. However one good thing about this electronic focus design is that it is very quick in response though it lacks the tactile response that we are all used to when turning the focus ring for other mechanical built focus rings.
The sharpness of the image and image quality in general is one of the most important things to look out for when purchasing a camera lens. The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM produces a very sharp image with soft edges that will really impress you. This thus, makes these lenses to produce very high quality images that anyone would desire to have. When it comes to image quality, these lenses would score maximum points and I would definitely recommend it to someone for purchase. The Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM is also user friendly and in general is one of the best camera lenses to buy.
