When comparing video clips shot with the [email protected] and the RF85 F/2 on an R5, the footage from the 85 looks a lot smoother. I haven't noticed a difference with still images, I haven't needed slow shutter speeds in a while now.Honestly though, if Canon pulls off 8 stops of IBIS with the unstabilized RF 85mm F/1.2, why even bother with IS? We know from Canon that the larger aperture lenses (28-70, 85mm 1.2, 50mm 1.2) give IBIS more room to work, which gives better stabilization.[..]
Hopefully they release a 1.6 as well so we can make more YouTube videos arguing about which lens takes the best pictures of test charts.Oh thank goodness! There’s only 17 lenses in the RF Lens lineup right now, 8 primes, and 3 of them are 85mm primes. More 85s is definitely the gap that needs to be filled right now.
