The EF 135mm f/2L lens by Canon has been a popular choice for portrait photography as an alternative to the standard 85mm focal length. It has been recognized as one of the company’s top lenses due to its exceptional image quality, with deep contrast and vivid colors, along with reliable and fast autofocus. Recently, Canon introduced the successor to this lens, the RF f/1.8 L IS USM. A comprehensive video review has been released, showcasing the lens’s performance and image quality in practical usage.
In this excellent video review by Christopher Frost, the new Canon RF 135mm f/1.8 L IS USM lens is examined. This lens offers a longer focal length than standard 85mm options, making it a great alternative for portrait photography. The higher telephoto compression can be more flattering on facial features. The predecessor of this lens, the EF 135mm f/2L, was highly respected for its excellent image quality, including deep contrast and colors, and reliable autofocus. Frost notes that the new version seems to have inherited many of these traits, making it an attractive option for portrait photographers. Watch the video for Frost’s full review of the lens.
