Is this focusing motor going to be faster than the Canon 85mm STM?
Asked by: Cory
The information out does not list specifics on AF speed. But from use it seems AF speed is about the same, not really faster. The lens is better in low light in general as it does have a wider f/stop of 1.4 compared to the Canon 85 rf lens which is f/2.
