Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Aperture Series: Huge Boulder In Beaver Pond

See my Canon mirrorless wishlist.

This series evaluates performance of the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM with a subject at medium-far distance along with distant finely detailed subject matter all in the face of an extreme contrast situation.

Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Aperture Series: Huge Boulder In Beaver Pond

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/1.2 through f/13.

There is a good reason that the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM costs about $2229—it’s worth it!

This is the finest f/1.2 lens I have ever used. Canon has achieved this performance with no lens corrections, as contrasted to the pathetic requirement for both chromatic and distortion correction for the the full-stop-slower Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S, with its impressively awful focus shift.

What a pity Canon is stuck at 30 megapixels with the Canon EOS R—and that Nikon has only consumer-grade lenses to offer so far for the Nikon Z7.

A a hungry beaver eager to survive winter, lodge at left in the distance, is actively scything-down many of the surrounding aspen trees. I hope it moves up to the very large historic pond, but this area seems prime for aspen cutting.
