Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM review by gluecklicht

  • Summary: What a lens this is! F/1.2 is out of this world. The colors are amazing and the build quality feels like it will take a beating and live to keep shooting. Currently, the 50mm is in fact my favorite lens. The balance and weight of this particular lens is superb. It picks up details that are lost by the f/1.4 & 1.8. Great for portraiture work. In the end I only recommend this lens to professional photographer who make a living with their images.
  • Pros: weather sealed, build quality, fast speed, weight
  • Cons: little slow on AF

Stunning Lens With Some Caveats

Perry, Aesthetic Photographer, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic lens that delivers truly stunning detail in urban night scenes at f/2.8 and smaller aperture settings. Otherwise, at wider apertures, I would use it mostly for portraits because it seems to have focus issues. In 2011, I bought this lens from B&H and took it on a three month tour of north and eastern France, mostly Paris. One night I was shooting the Eiffel Tower from the popular Trocadero plaza.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy

An amazing piece of glass!

  • Excerpt: I have purchased this both for use in still photography on my Canon 40D and as a professional "interview" lens for the C100. I have only had it for 24 hours, but the quality of the images that it generated, just around my home are stunning! I do not know why there are so many people who harp on the price or on the size, or on the "softness" of the images. The primary purpose of this over a different 50mm lens is the ability to create dreamy looking images.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, One Of A Kind Images, Rugged

  • Excerpt: i have a few L lens, this is my 1st choise when taking pictures for kids. with 6d's high iso, i turn night into day light. i posted a pic on wechat, my friend say she can take the same picture with her point and shoot camera, she say that because she can't imagine the kids's bright and clear faces are totally dark when you see it with your eyes... I also like the color, and back ground blur.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Great lens but tough to get used to.

  • Excerpt: I love this lens but can honestly say shooting under 1.8 its hard to get focused photos. I leave it at 1.8 and 2 and love it when its there. The other canon 50mm are good lenses but the images they make look cheap compared to this lens and don't have the mystique that this lens brings.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

In a word: WOW!

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a primary lens. It took a while to justify the cost of this lens, but it was worth the wait. The clarity and quality is there. Yes, one can throw all the technical terms out there and this lens will get high marks in all of them. However, my initial response stands: WOW!
