Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L vs Leica APO-Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH Comparison

Canon RF Vs EF 50mm F/1.2 EOS R System

A comparison between the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L and Leica APO-Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH lenses, both pretty expensive lenses.

While Canon’s “boutique lens” RF 50mm f/1.2L, a highly regarded lens, is everything but a budget lens, selling at $2,300, the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH is even more expensive, going over the counter at $5,000.

So can the “less expensive” Canon RF 50mm f/1.2, which is for the Canon EOS R system, hold up to a truly high-ende lens as the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH? The 14 minutes video below by Alex Barrera tells more.

The is an optical masterpiece and we covered it extensively.

Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L Review & Comparison With EF Version (DPReview TV)

Canon RF 85mm F/1.2L Review

A Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L review by DPReview TV. This is one of the boutique lenses for the Canon EOS R system.

Chris and Jordan of DPReview TV posted a Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L review. And they compare the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L with the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L.

This week Chris and Jordan take a closer look at the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L and – no surprises here – find it to be a technically excellent optic. They also compare it with the original EF-mount 85mm F1.2L, which is no slouch for its age, to see just how far the design has advanced in the past 15 years.

More Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L review stuff is listed here, and you won’t find a review that’s not praising this lens.
