Pros: Excellent sharpness, optical performance in general, low weight, reasonable price.

Cons: Autofocus, it does not have internal focus, it lacks the hood and is not tropicalized, but everything you can not have for this price!

Opinion: Arrived just today, here are my first impressions. I will use it on a Canon EOS R, without a stabilizer in the car. And starting from the stabilization, I must say that this 85 mm almost completely keeps what it promises. Up to 1/8 of a second you can shoot (if you have a fairly firm hand) without incurring the move, this means that the effectiveness of the stabilizer exceeds 4 f / stop. Sharpness: exceptional! The thing that surprises me is the uniformity center / edges, just as befits a macro lens. Moving from T.A. to f/4 I almost do not see the variation in sharpness at the edges, which is already excellent at full aperture. From an optical point of view nothing to complain, indeed a round of applause to Canon that has managed to create a lens with a relatively low price with this performance. Other advantages are certainly the low weight, obtained thanks to the fact of having used many plastic elements. Let us now turn to the slightly less positive things. The most serious one is the autofocus: despite having read all the reviews and knowing that it is the Achilles' heel of this lens, I expected much more. In photographic use (and not to shoot videos, in this mode I have yet to try it), it is not particularly fast, it is noisy and sometimes even the lens is missing. It seems that the STM engine struggles to move the lens assembly, as I had read in an authoritative review. As for the reliability of the MAF, I almost have the feeling that it is a firmware problem... Another thing I don't like is the fact that I don't have internal focus, so the barrel extends. In short, if you are looking for maximum optical performance like myself, you will be very happy with this RF 85 mm, but if you look at the focus you will turn up your nose a little.

Pros: Performance, size, weight, price.

Cons: Absence of tropicalization

Opinion: The optics exceed expectations in everything, in particular in definition and in addition returns a truly unexpected bokeh. The only really considerable drawback does not lie in the lack of the hood or in the absence of the soft case, but in the lack of tropicalization, if there were it would be a must at that price .....

Pros: Sharpness, macro, blurry, stabilizer

Cons: Autofocus

Opinion: I bought this lens because I wanted a more universal lens than an 85 1.4 for portrait and a 100 2.8 macro, very specific. The compromise of having a maximum aperture of f2 is compensated by the possibility of approaching up to a magnification of 1:2, remarkable for a portrait lens. The sharpness is uncompromising, you always shoot quietly at maximum aperture with total precision of focus. the blurry is not from 1.4 and could not be, but I assure you that even at f2 you get very pleasant results and a more than excellent detachment without permanently eliminating the surrounding environment but isolating the subject in the right amount. the parts a little negative are the speed of the autofocus, although it gains in precision, and the focus in macro mode, a little difficult if very close to the subject, in these cases better to use the manual focus. Excellent construction and well compacted a little less the extension of the internal barrel. I highly recommend this lens to those who, like me, do not have a specific continuous genre between portrait and macro but a mixture of both without compromising too much one and the other. Rating 9.5.

Pros: Limited optical quality, stabilizer, weight and footprint, brightness not record-breaking but exploitable pienaments, fast and quiet af

Cons: Paraluce not included (bad canon habit for non-L) and tropicalization absent

Opinion: I put it to the test with different close ups and portraits, because the focal, brightness and minimum maf allow you to juggle both of these genres. The lens responds very well: in the portrait it offers a very pleasant and quite destructured blurry, the complexion is well rendered, according to Canon tradition and the sharpness is all there, even without the very high microcontrast typical of old-school macros. In the shots at close range emerge, indeed you confirm excellent qualities of sharpness to all the diaphragms, the stabilizer allows you to dare even times that in macro you could only dream of a decade ago, and the bokeh of the out-of-focus floors is gradual and pleasant. It's not a real macro, but it does very well in close-up shooting, and it's not a superluminous, but it does very well in poor ambient light and portraits. It weighs little, relatively small footprint, it is perhaps the optics with the best value for money (for what this simplification is worth) in the current RF landscape. I would have paid something more for the lampshon and especially the tropicalization, but it is still well built and absolutely devoid of games. With the 35/1.8 that I already had form a minimal kit with which to have fun doing a little bit of everything without giving in the eye or dislocating a shoulder.

Pros: Lightness and compactness,

Cons: No lampshed.

Opinion: I got there this morning and took a few shots to see what it's like. I immediately found myself well and very light and compact mounted on the R practically you can hardly feel the weight at all. Already at full openness and very sharp and has a very good blurry. In the next few days I will see how he copes better with portraits and macros.
