Canon 50mm f/1.2 Overview

  • 1Description

Rounding out your kit, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens with Accessories Kit from B&H bundles the normal-length prime lens with 72mm circular polarizer and UV filters as well as a lens cleaning kit.

  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens

    Clearly distinguished by its bright maximum aperture, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM is a normal-length L-series prime also sporting a robust physical design and advanced optical layout. The impressively fast f/1.2 maximum aperture affords a great degree of control over depth of field for isolating subjects and producing desirable selective focus effects. Complementing these qualities is a sophisticated optical composition, which includes one aspherical element to suppress spherical aberrations in order to achieve notable sharpness and clarity. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting and promote greater contrast and color accuracy in a variety of lighting conditions. Complementing the imaging attributes, a ring-type USM is employed to deliver quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control.

    Normal-length prime is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides an 80mm equivalent focal length.
    Exceptionally bright f/1.2 maximum aperture affords extensive control over depth of field for selective focus applications and also benefits working in low-light situations.
    One aspherical element helps to suppress spherical aberrations and distortion for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
    Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
    A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with optimized focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
    Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
    As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.

  • Luminesque 72mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit

    Combining two of the most useful filters available, Luminesque's 72mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit is well-suited to all forms of photography. Both filters are constructed from Schott optical glass and feature a 12-layer multi-coating for maintained clarity and image quality. Each filter is also set in an anodized aluminum filter ring, with the UV filter featuring a slim 3.4mm-thick profile to lessen the likelihood of vignetting with wide-angle lenses.

    The UV filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. It is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times in order to reduce dust and moisture from reaching the front lens element and to provide additional protection in case of accidental impacts. Its 12-layer multi-coating also helps to achieve 98.2% light transmission for faithful color reproduction and contrast.

    The circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

    Luminesque PRO
    • Constructed from Schott optical glass for maintained image quality and clarity.
    • A 12-layer multi-coating helps to reduce surface reflections and glare for improved contrast and color neutrality.
    • Anodized aluminum filter rings feature a knurled top edge for easier installation and removal.
    UV Slim Filter
    • Absorbs UV light and reduces bluish cast of daylight for greater image clarity.
    • Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
    • Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching the front lens element.
    • 12-layer multi-coating helps to realize a high light transmission rate of 98.2%.
    • Slim filter ring incorporates front threads and measures 3.4mm-thick to lessen the likelihood of vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses.
    Circular Polarizer Filter
    • Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
    • Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
    • Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
    • Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.

  • ZEISS Lens Cleaning Kit

    This Lens Cleaning Kit from ZEISS is a complete solution for cleaning valuable optics such as camera lenses, eyeglasses, telescopes, or spotting scopes.

    Both wet and dry cleaning tools are provided. For blowing dust off an optical surface, the air blaster can be used, while the retractable lipstick-style cleaning brush can dislodge more stubborn dirt or dust particles.

    When a thorough wet cleaning is required, a 1 oz bottle of cleaning fluid or ten, individually-wrapped pre-moistened lens wipes are available. Designed for single use, these wipes come in individual, disposable packets. They can be stored in a camera bag, glove compartment, studio, or lens case for whenever they may be needed.

    The non-abrasive, 7.1 x 7.1" microfiber cloth can be used after applying fluid or one of the pre-moistened wipes in order to complete the cleaning process and ensure that no streaks or spots remain. It can also be used on its own to effectively remove smudges.

    A fabric travel case is also included to hold the contents of the entire kit.

Canon 50mm f/1.2 Reviews

EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1064.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It put most of my other lens on the shelf I am not a one to write reviews but this one made me do it. After seeing pictures that I took with this lens I am having hard time using any other of my lens. I was looking for something that would make my portraits sweeter and dreamier and this lens surpassed expectations. Maybe next step will be 85 1.2 (no, definitely) but for now I have or know of no other lens for my gear that gives so much color and dreams and character to my pictures. What I was looking for. If you need sweet smiles with sparkling eyes looking out of a creamy bokeh and surrounded with outstanding outdoor colors, that is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only sorry I waited! I mainly shoot babies under 2 weeks using only natural light. I have had the 50 1.4 for 4 years so had a hard time justifying the upgrade. I wasn't getting the results I wanted and after doing some research about the issues I was having, the 50 1.2L seemed to be the solution. From the moment I clicked the first shot its been love. Wow! Why did I wait?? I have 3 other L lenses and yes, L does make a difference. Not sure why it took me so long to clue in it would here too. Don't wait. Just buy it. You won't be sorry. My only regret is waiting so long. I'm now going to order the 100mm 2.8L and get rid of all my non-L lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Images I upgraded this lens from my 1.4 for a trip to France where I assumed (correctly) that flash would not be permitted in museums and churches. I am extremely happy with the images captured; I have great images inside the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris while all those around me were struggling with their 3.5 - 5.6 zooms. OK, it's a heavy and expensive lens, but the images are perfectly clear and have a warm and personal feel. Haven't tried serious portraiture with it yet so can't comment on Bokeh, but I sure like the build and feel of the lens. My 1.4 was good, but this lens is a real keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Glass!! You know, it is what it is. It's a little soft, which is often the complaint about it, but it renders an image that can't be achieved with any other glass. I've owned this lens before and reluctantly sold it. I really debated getting it again, but I'm really glad I did. It's just a great performer. I'm shooting with the 5DSR and I'm very satisfied with the sharpness. I also have the Sigma Art 50. It is clearly sharper, no surprise there. But the Sigma rendering, again, just doesn't compare to the Canon. No other lens does what this 50 does. So it is personal preference, but I'd definitely buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This lens is wonderful. After a quick AF microadjust, it performs beautifully on the 5d Mark iii, with quick AF and sharp images. It's fast enough to create sharp photos on our baby, who never holds still, even at f/1.2. With the high ISO of a modern DSLR and f/1.2, I can shoot usable photos in places so dark I can't even see through the viewfinder (Live View helps here). It's light and relatively compact, and this camera/lens combo is easy to carry all day long (even when carrying a baby too!) One point: its focuses well at all apertures when the appropriate AF point is chosen. Focus/recompose is not a great idea with this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took a snapshot and we were sold... It is hard for me to buy a Canon (6D and this 50mm F1.2) after using many Nikons (one of them was the F4) in the past 30 years. However, took a snapshot of my wife on the first day and both of us were sold. Took a photo of friends in a party using F5.6 and ISO 8000 (yes, thousands, not hundreds) and I just couldn't believe it. Took hundreds of photos during the holidays and I was amazed (or surprised) time after time. Two more good things: No need to use the flash and no need to use Photoshop. I couldn't do better than the 6D and this 50mm F1.2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hello All Great Lens a little pricey but ohhh the pictures. As an observation one might want to mention which camera they use this lens with. I shoot a 7D and I don't have any focus issues. Yes it shoots FAST- I would recommend this as a good lens with the 7D- but I do not know how it operates with other cameras I have used this combo for action photos, landscapes, and portraits-- al with great results. it takes a little while to master the razor thin focus wide open, but you get great results-- I plan to purchase a 6d FULL FRAME and I am sure the results will be superb Thank you Buy this lens and if you don't like it then sell it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite lens for 6D i have a few L lens, this is my 1st choise when taking pictures for kids. with 6d's high iso, i turn night into day light. i posted a pic on wechat, my friend say she can take the same picture with her point and shoot camera, she say that because she can't imagine the kids's bright and clear faces are totally dark when you see it with your eyes... I also like the color, and back ground blur. 85 or 135, or 70-200 2.8 are for adult, who can stand away from you and follow your instruction, for for kids, you can't stand two far away to get their attention. The more i use it, the more i like it, Buy it if you want to take pictures for kids in dark outside or low light indoor.
