  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: The 50 1.2L either you love it, or you hate it. Seems not to be a mid term here. This is my take: This lens is not sharp at 1.2. Is not super sharp even at 1.4. There.... I said it. But, and it`s a BIG "but" people who buy this piece of glass doesn`t buy it for it`s sharpness wide open.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Know your lens -- Avoid f/2

  • Excerpt: Fantastic lens, but it requires careful use. Sharpness peaks at f/1.2 and f/8 to f/9 according to my tests with Reikan Focal. Sharpness bottoms out at f/2 with my copy. So I use it either wide open or stopped down, but not in between.

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.
  • Pros: weather sealed, build quality, fast speed, weight
  • Cons: little slow on AF

Stunning Lens With Some Caveats

Perry, Aesthetic Photographer, B&H Photo
9 February 2015
  • 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.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy
