Canon Middle East launched the latest generation of Canon’s iconic 85mm f/1.2L lens, the RF 85mm F1.2L USM. Offering the highest resolution of a Canon lens launched to date, it features a super-fast aperture and outstanding AF speeds, making it ideal for capturing candid portraiture and wedding photography.

Following Canon’s lens development announcement in February, the RF 85mm F1.2L USM is the first of six RF mount lenses being introduced by Canon in 2019. This lens, endorsed by award-winning Canon Europe Ambassador Félicia Sisco, will take users of the legendary EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM to the next level of performance. All six RF lenses will offer incredible quality and versatility for those looking to get the perfect shot.

Sisco said, “As a wedding and portrait photographer, I need to be able to trust my tools so that I can focus on the subject and tell their story. I have been using Canon’s iconic 85mm 1.2 lens for over 20 years because of its speed and wide-aperture which guarantees beautiful images, even in low light. “The new RF 85mm F1.2L USM is better than I could have imagined. This lens produces a depth of field and bokeh that is impossible to achieve with other lenses and I already know it will become a staple in my kitbag. It separates the subject from the background and delivers a sharp focus on the subject’s eyes which is simply breath-taking, capturing every special moment.”

Binoj Nair, Senior Manager, B2C Marketing & Direct Sales, Canon Middle East, said: “With the use of ground-breaking Canon optics, we are excited to introduce the ultimate portrait lens for razor sharpness and exceptional low-light performance. The RF 85mm F1.2L USM, the highest resolution of a Canon lens launched to date, takes quality one step further while producing elegant and detailed results with a pleasing perspective and no distortion – ideal for the creative storyteller looking for optical precision in every shot.”
