Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens

BH #CA5012LEF • MFR #1257B002
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens
Key Features
  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.2 to f/16
  • One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
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.

Can I use this lens on a BlackMagic URSA Mini EF? More specifically, does the camera electronics talk to the lens via ATEM switcher? Finally, when making Iris adjustments (from the switcher, are the changes smooth or does the iris step up/down through the stops?
Asked by: Steve M.
Yes, you can use a ATEM switcher to remotely control the iris of an EF lens on the Blackmagic Design URSA Mini. We assume the iris changes will step down incrementally and not in an obvious fashion, I.E., not in full stops.

I own the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens. Great lens. Any advantages of owning both lenses? Please highlight uses and advantages of owning both the Canon EF 50mm F/1.2L USM and the Canon EF 35mm F/1.4L II USM. Thank you.
Asked by: Daryl
A 50mm lens would have less distortion which makes it better than a 35mm for normal shots such as portraits. Also being an f1.2 allows it to be used in lower light.
