    If you know how to use this lens, it is amazing. I have encountered none of the focus problems which some users have reported. Used on a 1Dsmk3.

One of the unequaled new lenses, this one is setting the standard for Canon.

The EF 50mm f/1.2L USM features that lovely ultra-large aperture that will result in the more narrowed depth of field and will help you to attain that very soft blurred background that most of us are striving for.

You can use the EF 50mm f/1.2L USM in virtually any type photography area and it is suitable for nearly any situation you might find yourself photographing in.

With a its lens coating and style of construction that are optimal for helping to lower if not eradicate the ghosting that can take place on digitals, it will also help to cut the flare down to nothing.

A high performance, virtually silent lens, it also has the added advantage of offering you some level of weather resistance and gives a truly excellent resolution and the kind of contrast that we all want in our digital imagery.

The autofocus speed is a bit lessened by the heavy duty glass,but the overall weight and feel are quite comfortable and it is an easily managed lens, with easy connect and disconnect.

Great sharpness and really good performance even in corner sharpness make this a good buy for your digital.
