Canon 50L

  • Excerpt: Outstanding Bokeh.<br />One of the beauties of this lens. <br />I used to own 50mm f/1.4 and this lens is far outstanding lens then the f/1.4<br />Better color contrast, construction and extra .2 stop.<br />People may think that almost 5 times of the cost of the f/1.4 version is not worth it at all, however once you start using the 50L, you will find yourself in love with this lens.<br />Highly recommended!!

Fantastic Lens!

  • Excerpt: I won't call myself a serious pro by any means but I love to shoot...lifestyle and food photography are my favorites making this lens perfect. I've got the 85mm, a 24-105mm, and this handsome lens rounding out my quiver of lenses nicely. Toggled between getting the 85 and the 50 for a while but super glad to have picked up the 50 in the end. If you want a handy fixed focal length lens with great closeup range and gorgeous blur (bokeh) for backgrounds, go for it!

Super Fast and Easy To Handle

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens because I love the creative value in it. I am using it for photographing people and of course landscape including pet photography. The bokeh isreally great, no question about that. I find it super fast and I used it taking photos on wedding and the performance is fast. Others are telling that the result of this lens is kind of soft but I think it is designed as it is.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Favorite lens ever!

  • Excerpt: This is my go-to lens. I have gradually upgraded my 50mm over the years and this is by far the best investment I have made in my equipment. It's a painful buy on the bank account, but very well worth it!
