Well, Canon doesn’t make the choice easy. I was planning to buy the cheap and cheerful EF 85mm F1.8 new, until rumors surfaced that RF 85mm F2 STM is a stabilized macro, which solves the two biggest problems with older 85mm lenses like that EF (no IS and long MFD). I’ve suspended the purchase for the moment.

One thing about the EF 85 f/1.8 often overlooked is the significant LoCA of the lens. This may be serious or not, depending on usage. I'd wait.
