The EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens - Serious Glass for Serious Photographers

The EF50mm f/1.2L USM lens is now the fastest autofocus lens in its class, which makes it an essential tool for many professional and advanced amateur photographers.

Canon is the only camera manufacturer to provide professionals and advanced amateurs with Digital SLRs that feature full frame sensors, such as the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II and EOS 5D digital SLRs. The new EF50mm f/1.2L USM lens complements full-frame cameras, while delivering beautiful results on APS-C/H sized sensor models as well.

The EF50mm f/1.2L USM lens is a strong testament to Canon's heritage of optical excellence. Every aspect of this lens exudes professional quality from its wide 72mm filter diameter to its dust and moisture sealed construction.

A high refraction glass molded aspherical lens element helps to minimize spherical aberration, which is crucial in order to provide fine detail and maximum image quality from corner to corner, even when the lens is used wide open.

Full frame digital camera users will especially appreciate the benefits of the 50mm focal length, when shooting waist-up portraits while maintaining appropriate subject distance at a wedding.

The large maximum aperture of f/1.2 allows this lens to produce shallow depth of field that softens the background and makes subjects "pop" out of a portrait. Photographers can also take advantage of higher shutter speeds to shoot in lowerlight and help prevent blurring caused by subject movement or camera shake.

In addition to a large aperture, the new lens also has blazingly fast autofocus speed and response time, thanks in part to Canon's ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), which quietly drives the lens. A full-time manual focus feature allows photographers to fine-tune the sharpness of their images, even when the lens is set for autofocus.

Canon designed the EF50mm f/1.2L USM to deliver the best possible optical quality while being tough enough to meet the needs of demanding photographers. Eight lens elements in six groups provide high resolution, while advanced coating suppresses flare and ghosting.

A glass molded (GMO) aspherical element ensures maximum image quality by reducing spherical aberration and linear distortion. Dust and moisture resistant components in the lens mount, switches, and focus ring help to protect the lens in a wide variety of shooting conditions.

7D + 50 MM 1.2 L sries Canon= Great Shot

I use the same combo 7D plus a 50mm 1,2-That is the combo I have, and I would urge everyone reading this to use the Quick button first (Top Left button on back of the camera). I start by observing the light-and then set on auto and fire away. next I go to manual departing from the auto Shutter speed, Aperture, and ISO combo. I use the Quick button and quickly change to these setting (with slight variation)- You will get great shots.

Absolutely amazing! ...

Absolutely amazing! Whatever composition I want to achieve when taking video, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM does the rest! With the newly installed Dual Pixel AF in my C100, I am taking my work to a higher level. I must admit, I wish the prices were more competitive though. I already spent a fortune on 4 Canon EF L series fast lenses.

It put most of my other lens on the shelf

By

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.

Please "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood".

"If I seem edgy, I want you to know, I never meant to take it out on YOU!" I haven't purchased the 50mm f/1.2 yet, but that's why I'm reading the reviews by those who have. The conclusion that I've reached is that MOST don't know what does what. First, there is NO SUCH THING as a "Narrow DOF". DOF should be referred to as "Shallow" (focus on the nose, and the ears are blurred). Hand holding the camera with the lens wide open at f/1.2 will result in blurred images. A Tripod should be used for this, especially when your Model is quite close. Next; 50mm on a crop sensor camera has NO real bearing on "Angle of View". Instead, it's focal length effectively becomes close to 80mm, or approx. the same as an 85mm lens on a Full Frame camera which is the preferred focal length for Portraits. "Dynamic Range" (I believe) is a function of the Camera. "Bokeh" is NOT the creamy melding of background colors. That is a result of the WIDE aperture being used which as should be expected, puts objects in the background WAY OUT OF FOCUS. "Bokeh" is the way lights in the background appear. A lens with a 5 blade aperture will create a Pentagon, 6 blades, a Hexagon, 8 blades, an Octagon etc.. With a lens WIDE OPEN, objects that are NOT THE SUBJECT, but relatively close will be Out of focus, and the lights will appear more or less as Circles. When the Center AF point is selected manually, it is almost ten times more precise than the other AF points, so YOU (Camera operator), and your subject must be STATIONARY. Depth of field is extremely "Shallow" when the lens is Wide Open. When "Stopping down" to smaller apertures, ALL LENSES will come into their "Sweet Spot". If a lens were to allow for extremely sharp images from it's Max. aperture to it's Min. aperture, it would be prohibitively expensive, if at all possible. (Think Hubble Telescope). Also to some, I believe that "Stopping down", which results in increased DOF, and sharper appearing images, gives the impression that the lens is NOT as good as it should be when opened up. I'm an amateur enthusiast who shoots a lot at night with only the lights from the streets for illumination. I NEVER use Flash, nor auxiliary lighting, and my current go to lens is the 50mm f/1.4 but, as weird as it sounds, it fails to find proper focus when set to AF regardless of distance, aperture, shutter speed or Automatic/Manual AF point selection. That's why I'm shopping the 50mm f/1.2

A must lens for serious photogs

By

I have been working with this lens for five years. It has helped me achieve endless, beautiful photos. I use it mostly for portrait photography, and it is my go to lens. If you take a copious amount of photos, you will not be disappointed with the purchase.

Great Images

By

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.

Lightning fast

By

In a lens fight the 50mm 1.2 would be my first choice. Big, ultra fast and very good looking lens. Creating works of art in photography any L lens would be great to have. And the 50 1.2 has the potential for creative works or art in photography. I had this lens for one month and only beginning to see impressive results in image quality. The colors achieved at f1.2 are amazing. Creating works of art is doable with this lens. Any Canon 50mm is a good choice, but the big 50L is worth the experience. And if it works for you at your level of expertise then keep it.

This lens is not for everyone. Learn to use it and you will be rewarded with a smile. I have no regrets buying it. It paired well with my 5DmkIII.
