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.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Reviews
50 mm 1.2
Been shooting with a 50 mm for years, it was time for new one, I love this lens
Bought this for my sister and her career took off, the quality is next to none.
Another Go-To Lens
Added this lens to my top three Canon lens's. I have a wide variety of Canon lens's, some of which rarely see the light of day. This one is different, with the wide depth of field and the f/1.2, it's amazingly sharp! And very rugged as I learned when it rolled out the back of my truck on day two of using it and hit the concrete. Solidly built. still works like a charm!!
Very pleased with this purchase. The lens was shipped quickly and very carefully packaged. It is in pristine condition.
Love This Lens!
I couldn't be happier with this lens...so much bokeh! I absolutely love it.
A Perfect Portrait Lens
This is hands down just a wonderful lens! My two favorite primes to use for portraits are 50 and 85mm, and this is without a doubt the best 50mm I have ever used. Being f/1.2 you can achieve absolutely insane Bokeh if that is your thing. The images are crisp to the edges. If you are searching for your first pro level portrait lens this or the EF 85mm f/1.4 is usm would be a great choice. Between the two I find this handier and a little more versatile.
Worth Every Penny
Highly recommended! The focal distance of 50mm is very versatile so can be used for portrait and also can be used for some urban photography. This lens delivers a monster bokeh. I cannot praise it enough, I have RF glass (non-L) that cannot compete with this one.
100% worth the upgrade
I used a 1.4 for years and really questioned if the upgrade was really worth it. Well, after purchasing this lens, I am 100% happy with my purchase. The upgrade in quality is night and day. Beautiful bokeh!
