Both of these lenses promise to be revolutionary in their own way. The RF 70-200 f/2.8L comes in a significantly lighter and more compact package than its predecessor, the EF 70-200 f/2.8L III (3.3 lbs, 1480 grams). Weighing only 2.35 lbs (1070 grams), the RF 70-200 2.8L will actually be lighter than the RF 85 1.2 DS (2.63 lbs, 1195 grams). The RF 85 1.2L DS promises smoother bokeh. I can’t wait to get my hands on both of these lenses!
