Review – Canon EF 85 f/1.2L II
By| March 5, 2013
Justin has posted a new review for us. This time for the Canon EF 85 f/1.2L II, Canon’s king of lowlight for now. It’s a lens that’s hard to use well at the beginning, but if you give it some time, you’ll grow to love it and all its quirks.
“The more I used this lens, the more I got to know it, the better my images became, and the more impressed I was with it. Often relying on flash modifiers and scenes built with speedlights and strobes, I took pleasure in exploring natural light situations, and allowing focus isolate my subjects instead of contrast. I know that if it was a regular piece in my kit I would likely bring it to every job I had just to try for some of the impressive three-dimensional feeling images it creates.”
We’re going to be organizing reviews in a new way shortly, currently they’re pretty cumbersome to get to. Stay tuned.
