Canon sent me the RF 135mm 1.8 lens as a loaner to test out, but as you know, I’m not an unboxing kinda guy. For our photography training videos, I like to actually show the product in use on a live photoshoot. We’ve already tested this lens in a studio setting for our new team headshots. So this time, we took it to downtown St. Louis for an outdoor fashion photoshoot. Check out the behind the scenes video as well as the final results below.
Camera: Canon EOS R5
Lens: Canon RF 135mm F1.8 L IS USM Lens

Conclusion: What do I think of the Canon RF 135mm F1.8 lens?
This lens is a beast and, if we are being honest, a lens that portrait photographers around the world lust over. I love the results we got, and let’s just say I don’t think I’ll be sending this lens back to Canon any time soon 🙂 (Kidding. But I’m definitely going to be adding one of these to my bag!)
