Canon 85mm f/1.2L II As a Landscape Lens, Wide Open or Stopped Down? Five Aperture Series

Just published in DAP are five new landscape studies of the Canon 85mm f/1.2L II.

The Canon 85/1.2L II is a wonderfully versatile lens, able to deliver a sharp image at f/1.2 with beautiful blur, or be tack sharp to the corners when stopped down. It is eminently suitable for use as a landscape lens, in spite of its ostensible “portraiture” designation.

This study shows the interplay of sharpness and bokeh and “color bokeh” at f1.2. f1.4, f1.8, f2, f2.5, f2.8, f3.5, f4, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, being didactively instructive for using the 85/1.2L II in the outdoors (or otherwise).

The aperture series are a visual tool, presented as a mouse-over animation as usual, a sort of short animation/movie which is very helpful in understanding depth of field and bokeh and color bokeh.

Each subject was chosen to illustrate the lens behavior in some way a little different from the others. I would have preferred sunny lighting, but the even overcast light actually allows a straightforward evaluation of the lens behavior without harsh shadows or changes while the shooting occurred.

Retina-grade images are shown. Click each image to go to its respective study.
