Canon 5dMkIII used for presidential portrait.

5dMkII was used for the first ever digital, presidential portrait in 2009.

5dMkIII was used for the second term.

Lens was 85mm 1.2.

It speaks volumes about current technology. I would have guessed a medium format camera wourd have been used for a portrait that will be a piece of American history.
