My favorite portrait lens is $300 off – save the money I wish I could've!

Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM deal

I wish this Amazon Prime Big Deal Days offer was available when I bought my own copy of this lens! But my loss can be your gain, as the phenomenal Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L has been slashed by $300 right now.

This lens is so good that I bought one the second it was launched, having held onto my review sample for as long as possible while testing it. But of course, that meant that I paid the full $3,099 asking price. So don't hesitate! If you love portraiture, pick up the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L for just $2,799!


Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L IS USM| $3,099| $2,799
SAVE $300
My favorite fast glass! Combine the 85mm focal length with the f/1.2 aperture and you can utterly obliterate backgrounds into a bokehlicious blur – all while retaining razor-sharp detail on your subjects. An EPIC lens.
