Pros and cons

According to our camera lens expert
  • The lens has a large aperture, which allows you to create a lot of depth of field.
  • Take sharp shots thanks to the fixed focal length.
  • Thanks to the dustproof sealing, the lens remains clean and clear.
  • The lens doesn't have image stabilization to compensate for motion blur.

Description

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM is a compact and light lens. WIth the fixed light value of f/1.2, you create portraits with background blur. This way you attract attention to your subject. The fixed focal length ensures a lot of sharpness with as little distortion as possible. The large lens opening also allows a lot of light on the sensor, so that you mostly won't have to use a flash. The fast ultrasonic focusing motor focusses silently, so you won't scare your subject when photographing at close range.

    Canon lens

    Super objective. Best results with a fixed focal point on full-frame. Stimulates creativity.
    The maximum aperture opening in particular is unmatched.

    Perhaps better taken the Canon EF 50 mm f/1.4 USM

    • bokeh very very good
    • weight in relation to other lenses
    • not huge
    • expensive

    I'm used to buying the products from the l-series (once you start with that, returning is difficult) but with this one I might have taken the Canon EF 50 mm f/1.4 USM. Since it costs about 1,000 euros less and is only 1 aperture stop, or rather half brighter. That aside, it is a very good lens of course, I have already been able to take photos with a beautiful bokeh effect.

    a real improvement!

    Bart D'Hooge | 18 June 2019 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • super sharp
    • expensive

    The difference between the regular 50 mm lens and this 1.2 is huge. Especially under conditions where there is less light.

    The lens is certainly not for everyone, but for people who are sure what his needs are. Best photo I've ever taken is with Canon 50 1.2.
